Airbus Signs MoU With EGTS International

Airbus has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with EGTS International, a joint venture company between Safran and Honeywell Aerospace, to further develop and evaluate an autonomous electric pushback and taxiing solution for the A320 family. Under the agreement, EGTS International’s electric green taxiing system - called ‘eTaxi’ – will be evaluated as a new option on A320s. eTaxi will use the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit (APU) to power electric motors fitted to the main landing gear wheels.
