Honeywell Airtime & Cabin Connectivity

Get to know the software & service platform

Explore our airtime offerings

Honeywell has joined forces with a broad spectrum of leading airtime service providers that enables us to develop the right solution for any operator, regardless of mission. Honeywell Forge Connectivity Services are system agnostic, meaning they work equally well with any airtime service provider.

Jet ConneX – Ka-Band

Jet ConneX – Ka-Band from Inmarsat provides reliable high-speed broadband connectivity with global coverage (except for the poles), even on transoceanic flights. Jet ConneX has speeds of 4.6-15 Mbps and was the first Ka-Band service to offer operators guaranteed data rates.

Various subscription-based airtime packages are available, which can be tailored to match your needs. Also available are a unique “pay-as-you-go” plan and JX-Pro, which provides unlimited use and speeds up to 33 percent higher than were previously available to business aircraft users.


SwiftBroadband from Inmarsat provides global voice and high-speed data capabilities simultaneously, through a single hardware installation. Operators can select from a portfolio of SwiftBroadband services offering a range of capabilities to meet aircraft size and communications requirements, including high-quality voice and a combination of always-on data and guaranteed connection rates. Speeds range up to 432 Kbps in standard configurations and as high as 600 Kbps with Xstream or high data-rate options.


Inmarsat Classic Aero Services

Inmarsat Classic Aero Services are available over the Inmarsat I-3 and I-4 satellites. Aero H provides packet data rates of up to 10.5 Kbps for ACARS, FANS and ATN communications and up to 9.6 Kbps per channel for multi-channel voice, fax and data links through a high gain-antenna – anywhere in the global beams of the I-3 satellites.

Aero H+ offers all the features of Aero H, but uses the I-3 regional spot beams and 4.8 Kbps voice codecs to deliver voice services at lower cost. Outside of regional spot beams, Aero H+ terminals operate in the global beams in the same way as standard Aero H systems. Aero H+ is also available in the full I-4 satellite footprint.
