Honeywell Completes JetWave System Testing For China

Honeywell Completes JetWave System Testing For China

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) completed ground testing and flight testing of the JetWave connectivity system in China on its world-famous Boeing 757. This is a major milestone for Honeywell that will greatly increase its support of China’s in-flight, high-speed satellite communication.

Based on proven performance and recognition in the market, JetWave is designed for the China’s Ka-band satellite network. It provides reliable and high-speed cabin connectivity. JetWave has speeds of up to 180 Mbps, so passengers can expect the same high-speed Wi-Fi experience at 40,000 feet as they do on the ground, fully meeting business and entertainment connection demands.

Chinese operators with JetWave can bring better flight experiences to their passengers through access to high-speed internet, further increasing their competitiveness in the global aviation market and increasing their profitability. On top of the passenger benefits, JetWave also brings greater connectivity to assist maintenance operators and flight operations better manage aircraft, reduce fuel costs, and help avoid aircraft delays.

Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications terminals provide a seamless, in-flight Ka-band service available worldwide. The hardware and network are optimized to work during flight, providing outstanding connectivity and enhancing the passenger experience.

In March 2019, Honeywell announced the appointment of Air Esurfing as the sole distributor of JetWave in China.
