Honeywell has been selected by Istanbul-based MNG Jet to supply its GoDirect Datalink and Cabin services to the company’s growing fleet.
The agreement will see MNG Jet upgrade its aircraft by including connected services that will improve cockpit communication, enhance flight efficiency and provide reliable high-speed Wi-Fi to the cabin.
Can Sasmaz, General Manager, MNG Jet, said: “MNG Jet is the leading business jet operator and maintenance organisation in Turkey and Central Asia, and we take pride in ensuring our fleet of aircraft operates at optimum levels of efficiency and safety with an enhanced flight experience for our clients and customers.
Honeywell’s GoDirect Datalink helps reduce a pilot’s workload by enabling seamless cockpit communications, like text messaging with air traffic control, using the robust two-way Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which is compatible with all VHF and satellite networks across the globe.
In addition, GoDirect Cabin offers a comprehensive suite of satellite communication services, including dedicated access to GoDirect apps and all the benefits brought by reliable high-speed internet, thanks to its next-generation routers and routing software.
John Peterson, Senior Director, Connectivity Services, Honeywell Aerospace, said: “We’ve worked closely with MNG Jet for several years as an authorised Honeywell Service Center, Channel Partner and Fleet Operator to provide a modernised aircraft experience.
“The latest selection of Honeywell’s GoDirect Datalink and Cabin services further enhance its fleet by keeping them better connected.
“Honeywell’s GoDirect Cabin provides the tools needed by operators to expand the in-flight experience for their passengers, while its Datalink offers pilots a dependable connected communication tool.”
Honeywell GoDirect Cabin has extended the benefits of its routing software, making it compatible with older routers through an exclusive refresh programme.
As such, Honeywell says operators will benefit from a highly innovative user experience and ease of control through the entire chain, from aircraft satellite communications to ground networks, without changing any of the aircraft hardware.
