Charter airline selects Honeywell's GoDirect router

Honeywell´s (NYSE: HON) GoDirectâ„¢ Router and GoDirect Access service have been selected by Air Hamburg to bring advanced cabin and passenger connectivity features to its fleet of Embraer Legacy 650 jets, the company said.

Combining the GoDirect Router with GoDirect Access allows the private jet operator to manage in-flight Wi-Fi connections more easily while monitoring network access to keep a close eye on data usage and associated costs.

With the smaller, more power-efficient GoDirect router, Air Hamburg can create new cost structures that make connectivity more readily available and ensure passengers can remain productive in flight. GoDirect Access offers enhanced network control to operators with monitoring options to ensure consumption charges never exceed budgets. These features can help streamline billing and eliminate the chance of operators absorbing costs that can be better met by passengers who benefit from the availability of Wi-Fi services in the cabin.

Introduced in March, Honeywell´s GoDirect Router provides all the speed, performance and reliability of today´s best routers in a package that is half the size and weight, and one-third of the price of comparable products. These features make it ideal for business jets. By enabling reliable connectivity in an easy-to-install system, the new router offers the broadest and most secure set of features available.
