Honeywell’s Style Shows on Paris Runway

June 20, 2017 | Author: Marianne Tomich

Paris is the center of the fashion universe and the site of some of the world’s most elite shopping. Jewelry, clothing, shoes, handbags and perfume all hold more prestige when they carry a Paris label.

But it isn’t fashion runway in the spotlight June 19-25 as hundreds-of-thousands of aerospace-industry decision-makers and aviation enthusiasts descend on the City of Light. It’s the runway at Le Bourget Airport, scene of the 52nd Paris Air Show.

For decades, Honeywell Aerospace has used the biyearly air show to unveil its latest technologies and 2017 is no exception. We’re making a huge statement this year with a focus on the Connected Aircraft and our world-class lineup of products, services and software solutions that take connectivity to new heights.

Honeywell’s unique Boeing®757 flying laboratory is making its own fashion statement this year with a new Connected Aircraft paint job. Our new livery features our Power of Connected corporate theme and callouts that highlight our nose-to-tail solutions for just about anything that flies. We’re using the plane at Paris to show off the many ways Honeywell is making flying safer, more efficient and more comfortable.

Our JetWave satellite communications system is a centerpiece of the technology Honeywell is featuring at this year’s show. JetWave is the only hardware that connects passengers to Inmarsat’s I-5 satellite network and the GX Aviation service for airline passengers or the Jet ConneX service for business jet flyers.

The Honeywell-Inmarsat solution delivers fast and reliable Wi-Fi anywhere – with quality similar to ground-based services. Passengers can stay in touch wherever they fly, even over the ocean, and can surf the web, stream video, access social media, chat live and even download huge files.

We complete the ensemble with a full range of GoDirect Cabin Connectivity services and an easy-to-use satellite communications toolkit that makes the service more reliable and easier to maintain. GoDirect is our one-of-a-kind portfolio of services and applications that capitalize on Connected Aircraft capabilities to make life easier for operators, flight crews and maintenance teams.

The Power of Connected extends well beyond the aircraft cabin. GoDirect Fuel Efficiency is a great example. It monitors aircraft fuel consumption and uncovers fuel-savings opportunities, delivering 2-3 percent reduction in an airline’s annual fuel costs – amounting to millions of dollars in savings.

Our latest Connected APU predictive maintenance service defines the Industrial Internet of Things, which is a Honeywell strong suit. It collects existing performance and health data generated by the auxiliary power unit so Honeywell experts can analyze the information and let maintenance chiefs know about potential issues days before they cause problems – saving money and helping the airline stay on schedule.

The Paris Air Show is always exciting for us and Paris 2017 is shaping up to be a very special show for everyone from Honeywell. Join us in Paris if you can … and if you can’t make it, follow us at on Twitter @Honeywell_Aero or on Facebook.
