What People on the Street Think of Inflight Wi-Fi

The Connected Aircraft

Enabling Connected Technologies

Honeywell is changing the way people communicate on and with an aircraft today and in the future — making the business of flying safer, more productive, and more entertaining.

With the dawn of the Connected Aircraft, Honeywell continues to deliver safer, more efficient, more productive and ultimately more enjoyable travel experiences. From hardware to apps to services, Honeywell provides solutions to optimize bandwidth and reduce data and operating costs while creating the best possible experience for passengers, pilots, maintainers and operators.

What if your flight did not have inflight Wi-Fi?

6 in 10 travelers say they would be disappointed or frustrated on a plane without Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi That Flies for Any Airline

A consistent, global wi-fi experience

For airlines, it's simple: provide a fast internet connection onboard or risk losing faithful customers. According to a recent survey, 45 percent of customers said they would not remain loyal to their preferred airlines if they knew it didn't provide the best Wi-Fi. More than 21 percent of customers say they've made the switch already.

Honeywell's JetWave™ hardware, which connects aircraft to Inmarsat’s GX Aviation service, enables a fast and reliable in-flight internet solution strong enough to power your preferred entertainment solution with speeds up to 50mbps. Now your customers can stream their favorite television shows and your pilots can re-watch their favorite cat videos at 30,000 feet. (Kidding, of course!)

Reliable Wi-Fi for Helicopters

The unique environment of a helicopter – with the vibrations and rotor blades -- has previously made high-speed satellite systems nearly impossible. But regardless of the challenges, operators need to be connected. Honeywell’s Aspire 200 satellite communications system fills this gap, bringing new capabilities and functionalities to operators.

Aspire 200 and the high data rate (HDR) software package mitigates the impact of the rotor wash on the satellite communications signal, bringing faster speeds and higher bandwidths than competing systems. Now, regardless of the mission – VVIP transport, oil and gas, emergency medical, or others – pilots, passengers, and ground crews are constantly connected, no matter where they operate.

Wi-Fi That Flies for All Ages

Global coverage at any altitude

Pilots and passengers will appreciate the affordable, global in-flight connectivity provided by AeroWave™ from BendixKing.

Crews will now have in-flight access to global weather services, voice, text, email and their favorite connected aviation apps. Plus passengers will enjoy the ability to send and receive emails, text messages, browse simple web pages, make and receive phone calls and more.

AeroWave’s low-cost connectivity service plan is based on prepaid hours of use – not the amount of data used - so there are no billing surprises. Airtime is only $40 USD per hour and, unlike other services it, works at any altitude all over the world. It’s that simple.

Don’t leave your favorite apps on the ground anymore. Find out how to get globally connected today.

Mission-Ready Communications

Reliable communications is vital to mission success for military operators. A high-bandwidth communications channel to and from the aircraft enhances safety and provides essential situational awareness for the warfighter. Honeywell’s JetWave system provides that mission-critical link.

JetWave is built with mobility in mind to keep personnel connected in the theater throughout all stages of flight. Regardless of the airframe or its mission, JetWave provides reliable, consistent, high-speed and high-bandwidth connectivity to warfighters when and where they need it.

JetWave unlocks a wide variety of applications, including real-time weather, video conferencing, large file transfer, encryption capabilities, in-flight briefings, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) video transmission and secure communications. And the system is scalable and configurable for a wide variety of military platforms, with antenna options available for large and small airframes.
