Meet Steve: Honeywell’s JetWave™ makes for a memorable holiday trip home

December 20, 2017 | Author: Carrie Fan


Traveling home to visit friends and family is a celebrated holiday tradition, one that’s even more meaningful when home is far away. Unfortunately, winter air travel often means frustrating flight delays and cancellations.

Steve, a homesick British graduate student studying in Chicago, was dismayed when the airline canceled his direct flight home to London for the holidays, forcing him into a longer connecting route through New York. His plans to surprise his family and girlfriend might have been in jeopardy were it not for the Honeywell Connected Aircraft technology available on his flight,

Using the Inmarsat GX Aviation satellite communications network, Honeywell’s JetWave™ inflight connectivity options offer fast, reliable inflight Wi-Fi at speeds comparable to those in your home or office. Steve could purchase last-minute gifts, and even carry on a FaceTime conversation with his girlfriend.

Honeywell JetWave gave Steve the flexibility he needed to ensure he arrived home in plenty of time — with gifts at the ready — surprising his family for a Christmas they would never forget.
