Dubai-based business jet operator picks Honeywell's cabin and cockpit solutions

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) signed an agreement with Empire Aviation Group to provide its full suite of GoDirect connectivity services and products for the cabin and cockpit, the company said.

The technologies, developed by Honeywell´s recent acquisition, Satcom1, will be installed on the entire fleet of aircraft managed by Empire Aviation Group.

The selection of hardware and airtime services supplied by Honeywell will enhance crew and passenger productivity, as well as boost passenger entertainment for Empire Aviation Group´s business jet owners and charter clients. Honeywell´s products include the AvioIP cabin router, which helps enable more reliable in-flight connectivity for passengers by giving them an “office in the sky” experience with enhanced Internet access, email, videoconferencing and smartphone usage.

Pilots will also have access to Honeywell´s Global Data Center in the cockpit, where real-time flight support and weather information services help them increase efficiency, measure fuel usage and avoid delays.

Uniting Honeywell´s software and hardware capabilities gives operators a seamless experience with a “one-stop-shop” connectivity platform spanning routing software, airtime, hardware equipment, electronics and flight support services.
