Honeywell Grows Business Aviation Customer Base In Asia Pacific Via Connectivity Solutions

Honeywell Grows Business Aviation Customer Base In Asia Pacific Via Connectivity Solutions

  • Business jet owners and operators in Asia Pacific adopting best-in-class connectivity to improve passenger experience and create new efficiencies.

SINGAPORE, Feb. 12, 2020 – Honeywell’s (NYSE: HONJetWave satellite communications hardware is now installed aboard major business jet platforms across the Asia Pacific region, expanding the company’s customer base and further establishing Honeywell as a global aerospace connectivity leader. New customers include Premiair, TAG Aviation Asia, Metrojet, ExecuJet Asia and Gandel Investments. Each has adopted high-speed connectivity services on board their business jets, such as the Gulfstream G550 and G650, Bombardier Global 6000 and Global 7500, and Dassault Falcon aircraft.

These business jet operators and their passengers can now enjoy greatly improved productivity with in-flight Wi-Fi speeds up to 33 Mbps, enabling videoconferences, large file transfers, web surfing and video streaming. The ability to access reliable, high-speed, in-flight Wi-Fi is a growing expectation in the business aviation space, with an increasing number of customers and channel partners in the Asia Pacific and China regions expressing interest in Honeywell JetWave satellite communications hardware.

To meet growing customer demand, Honeywell has partnered with leading industry players in the region to facilitate easy in-region installations, reducing delivery time. In-region partners that can install Honeywell JetWave, include Jet Aviation Singapore, Bombardier Aerospace Services, ExecuJet, Avionics 2000, Jet City and Metrojet. Honeywell has also partnered with VSE Aviation Singapore to have stock readily available to ensure timely installations. To date, Honeywell has delivered over 1,700 Honeywell JetWave systems across the commercial airline and business aviation sectors worldwide.  

“Travelers in Asia Pacific — particularly business jet operators and owners — are demanding better in-flight Wi-Fi and are willing to pay for faster connectivity like what they experience at home or in the office,” said Amit Kaul, leader, Business & General Aviation, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Aerospace. “Many of our customers in the region recognize how high-speed in-flight connectivity can provide them with the ability to communicate anytime for better business decision-making or enhanced in-flight entertainment. To better support these customers, we have also formed strategic partnerships to offer local installations for immediate delivery. This reduces installation time and cost.”

“As an aircraft charter operator in Indonesia, we aim to satisfy the needs of our customers,” said Tony Hadi, chief executive officer, Premiair. “We are confident in Honeywell’s support of Premiair’s growth in Indonesia and beyond, so we selected Honeywell as our fleet in-flight connectivity and services provider.”

JetWave delivers access to the faster Ka-band satellite communications network, provided by Inmarsat through its Jet ConneX service. This gives passengers and flight operators access to reliable, high-speed “Wi-Fi in the sky,” allowing easy use of high-bandwidth online services. JetWave also enables a fully connected aircraft when paired with Honeywell’s GoDirect services, which provide pilots and operators with the information they need to manage their flight operations and network — from flight planning and data management to predictive maintenance alerts.

Other Honeywell satellite communications solutions that offer high-speed connectivity include the Aspire suite of satellite communication offerings for the cockpit. Aspire leverages both Inmarsat’s and Iridium’s satellite systems to bring greater reliability, cost savings and efficiency to business aviation, airlines and helicopter operators around the world.
