Bombardier First To Deliver Honeywell's High-Speed "Jetwave" Connectivity
September 17, 2014
Bombardier Business Aircraft will be the launch business aircraft manufacturer for Honeywell’s JetWave Ka-Band satellite connectivity system. Honeywell’s JetWave hardware exclusively supports Inmarsat’s forthcoming Jet ConneX* (JX) service which, when it goes live in 2015, will provide business jet passengers with high-speed, in-flight connectivity virtually anywhere in the world.
“With JetWave securing the backing of a leading business jet manufacturer in Bombardier, we celebrate a major milestone in the evolution of business aircraft connectivity,” said Brian Sill, president, Business and General Aviation, Honeywell Aerospace. “The industry is showing a clear desire for high speed, global, consistent in-flight connectivity and is turning to Honeywell and Inmarsat to deliver it.”
Honeywell’s JetWave hardware will allow passengers to video-conference, send and receive large files and access streaming content while on the move by enabling them to access Inmarsat’s JX service. A range of service packages will be available to Bombardier customers, enabling them to select the speed that is right for their operations. In an industry first, each service package will be covered by a minimum service guarantee ensuring passengers experience a remarkable step forward in connectivity when compared to currently available technologies.
