Enhancing passenger experience in the air and on the ground is uniquely challenging. There are a lot of things that happen between flight check-in and deplaning that can impact a passenger’s experience of a flight. Of many factors that determine the experience, the most important ones are peace of mind or safety, on-time departure and arrival and cabin comfort and entertainment.
Honeywell is helping airlines drive a best in class customer experience, with its innovative solutions that include:
Turbulence, lightning, hail and other phenomena can lead to passenger injuries and discomfort on board, and huge loss to airlines through delays, cancellations, diversions and damage to the aircraft.
With Honeywell IntuVue RDR - 4000 – a fully-automated 3D weather radar, airlines can:
- Minimize the impact of severe storm activity
- Maximize aircraft efficiency, passenger comfort and safety
Its 3D display and analysis tools provide pilots with the right information at the right time, to make the most informed decisions. Better information in the cockpit means fewer delays, more direct journeys, and significant cost and fuel savings.
Inflight Connectivity – Cabin and Cockpit
Connected Aircraft brings immense opportunity to deliver a more comfortable, enjoyable and safer experience for passengers.
Honeywell’s market-leading satellite communications hardware, including JetWave, and the Honeywell Forge for Airlines suite of Cabin Connectivity, Connected Maintenance and Connected Ground-handling services deliver:
- Home-equivalent connectivity, providing a consistently outstanding passenger experience all over the world
- Great passenger experience of smoother and safer flights by helping the flight crew identify and avoid hazardous weather
- Better on-time performance by reducing maintenance related delays
- Faster turnaround for better on-time performance
SmartRunway and SmartLanding
Runway excursions represent 96% of the total runway-related accidents, and 80% of those
runway excursions have resulted in fatalities. This key safety issue is also costly, accounting
for US $1 Billion per year for inspections, repairs and passenger injuries.
Airlines, concerned with passenger safety are adopting Honeywell’s SmartRunway and SmartLanding - the software options for the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) that increase flight crew situational awareness during taxi, take-off and landing.
Air and Thermal Systems Management
Honeywell's range of electronic and electro-pneumatic systems for air and thermal management are proven to deliver highly reliable and efficient operation with lower total costs of ownership for aircraft operators. Honeywell’s cabin pressure systems deliver unparalleled passenger comfort while lowering costs, improving fuel efficiency, economizing on weight and easing the path to aircraft certification.
