Be a smart Summertime Traveler with Honeywell’s Help

May 18, 2017 | Author: Carrie Fan

Crying, screaming, and the worst question of all: “Are we there yet?”

We’ve all been there with our kiddos, and as parents, it’s all we can do to keep our cool during the crazy summer travel season. Families love to take vacations, but the chore of travel is another thing entirely.

Let’s face it, traveling with (or around) kids is not the most relaxing or enjoyable experience – especially when trying to navigate security lines and busy airports. So as the end of the school year quickly approaches, let’s get you ready for a fun summer family trip. Just leave it to Honeywell to make flying less stressful for everyone involved!

A new report predicts a record 234.1 million passengers will take to the skies this summer, so making that airline trip more convenient is at the top of every parent’s to-do list.

At Honeywell, we have an almost infinite list of products, services and software solutions that help assure air travel is safe, efficient and comfortable. During the busiest travel times, we understand travelers want to eliminate flight delays and avoid being stranded at the airport – especially with kids in tow.

Tools like our connected Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), connected Wheels & Brakes and GoDirect Maintenance help airlines stay on schedule. They take aviation maintenance and repair to the next level by incorporating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concept to reduce delays for travelers around the globe. No one wants to board a plane with their kids only to hear that dreaded message, “we’re having a mechanical issue, so we have to remain at the gate for a while.”

Speaking of the value of connectivity: thanks to the benefits of a connected aircraft, Junior may never utter “I’m Bored,” again during a long flight. From access to movies, music and educational games for the little guys, to internet capabilities for students working on summer school assignments, reliable, high-speed Inmarsat’s GX Aviation global Wi-Fi service enabled by our JetWave satellite communications system gives travelers the same internet experience in the air that they get on the ground. Plus, parents won’t have to stress about how to store those important vacation photos. They can upload them to the cloud while they fly.

And who wants to sit next to a screaming kid on a flight? Turbulence is a definite trigger to upset passengers – especially the youngest travelers. Our Weather Information Services, Connected Radar and IntuVue RDR 4000 3D weather radar helps pilots avoid turbulence and other hazardous weather situations to assure a smoother, more enjoyable flight for everyone onboard.

Families look forward to summer travel all year long. Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets us through the rigorous obligations of school and work. This year, let Honeywell’s vast portfolio of products and services ease your mind as you plan your vacation. We are proud to provide you with a comfortable flight so you can enjoy fun in the sun, creating memories that will last a lifetime!
