Bombardier and Honeywell has announced the latest delivery milestone in the installation of the revolutionary Ka-band satellite broadband technology aboard Bombardier Global and Challenger business jets, the company said.
Bombardier´s award-winning Singapore service centre installed its first Ka-band system on an in-service Global 6000 aircraft. In 2016, the Singapore service centre installed the first-ever Ka-band system on an in-service Global 5000 aircraft.
Ka-band technology features the industry´s fastest in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing passengers to browse the Internet, stream live TV and movies or stage a video conference virtually anywhere in the skies and as quickly and as effortlessly as they would in their home or office.
The system leverages Honeywell Aerospace´s JetWaveâ¢ hardware to deliver ultra-high-speed access, consistent performance and seamless coverage worldwide*. Bombardier´s Global aircraft offer the luxurious Premier cabin and a cutting-edge cabin management system (CMS). In addition to impressive performance characteristics and advanced wing design, they provide a smooth ride and can operate in and out of certain challenging airports, all while keeping passengers connected.
