Satair and Honeywell Aerospace sign JetWave agreement

Satair and Honeywell Aerospace have signed an agreement to distribute Honeywell’s JetWave high-speed in-flight connectivity system to a wide segment of the global business jet market.

JetWave is an inflight connectivity communication system that operates and communicates with the Inmarsat Ka-band GX satellite network to deliver high-speed internet into the cabin to connect multiple devices.

The business arm of the GX Aviation service is called Jet ConneX.

It allows travellers to keep in touch with their business teams, stream live TV and join video conferences to give global connectivity from take-off to touchdown.

Satair will be distributing JetWave to the EMEA and India based Honeywell Dealers, as well as Part 145 MRO and repair facilities that will undertake the installation work and are not part of the Honeywell network.

Because Satair has invested in a large pool of full ship sets of JetWave stock and will hold a certain inventory level of all Honeywell JetWave components, it says it will be able to offer immediate delivery to give an enhanced service to ease the management of the installation.

This new agreement with Honeywell Aerospace for the business jet market, builds on several other product lines that Satair also distributes to this sector.

This includes the global management of the ADS-B Out upgrade programme on Honeywell Primus-equipped business aircraft and the global distribution of several Honeywell Sensing product lines.

Allan Riis, Business Development Director, Satair said: “We are delighted that Honeywell continues to trust Satair to deliver great service to the business and general aviation market.

“We now have dedicated Single Point of Contact (SPOC) order desks for JetWave and other business aviation products and we see JetWave as part of a continuous journey by Satair into the important business and general aviation market.”

Raghed Talih, Director, Aftermarket Sales and Services, Honeywell Aerospace, Middle East, Turkey, India and Africa, said: “We are very pleased to further expand our relationship with Satair, and our history of collaboration especially on the Primus and ADS-B mandate programme  has demonstrated that Satair is a proactive and likeminded partner when bringing our products to market.”
