The operational benefits of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty wheels and carbon brakes for this aircraft are clearly proven. Messier-Bugatti-Dowty carbon brakes reduce the weight of each 737-800 by 770 pounds (350 kg) compared to conventional steel brakes, which in turn reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The new brake also features additional cost savings with a far greater endurance (2,200 landings per overhaul) and three times less maintenance.

"The savings generated by Messier-Bugatti-Dowty carbon brakes directly contribute to reduced operating costs, thus enabling us to pass those savings to our customers while offering them a better product," said Ignatius Ong, Chief Operating Officer for Malaysian Air System Short Haul Operations/Firefly."

Firefly previously made the switch to Messier-Bugatti-Dowty wheels and carbon brakes for its ATR 72-500 turboprop commuter fleet.

Alain Sauret, Chairman and CEO of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, added,"This latest contract for our wheels and carbon brakes clearly bolsters Messier-Bugatti-Dowty’s leadership position, attesting to the overall reliability and excellence of our products. In the 737 Next Generation market segment alone, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty is outselling the competition by three to one.”

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty offers a certified carbon brake for all models in the Boeing Next-Generation 737 family, as original equipment or for retrofit. To date, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty has recorded commitments to equip 750 airplanes.

The announcement of this contract falls prior to the prestigious Malaysian F1 Grand Prix race, where Messier-Bugatti-Dowty will also be on the starting line. The company supplies Formula One teams with carbon brake and clutch disks which offer the same reliability, safety and high-temperature endurance as Messier-Bugatti-Dowty’s aviation products.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty is the world’s number one supplier of wheels and carbon brakes, with over 5,000 commercial aircraft equipped.
