Honeywell, EAD Aerospace achieve certification to install JetWave communications hardware on A319 aircraft

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has received European Aviation Safety Agency certification for its JetWave high-speed satellite communications hardware to be installed and used on the Airbus A319, the company said.

JetWave provides passengers, pilots, and operators with access to Inmarsat´s Global Xpress Ka-band service, GX Aviation, the only high-speed wireless network that covers the entire globe while achieving speeds similar to those experienced at home or in the office. Several leading global airlines have committed to Honeywell´s JetWave hardware and the Inmarsat network, in addition to other business jet manufacturers.

EAD Aerospace, an Eclipse company that works closely with Honeywell, obtained the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification to install JetWave on the A319. The EASA certification follows Honeywell´s first Airbus A319 installation as part of a VIP project in October 2016, which featured state-of-the-art technologies and custom-made interior fittings. Previously, JetWave has also received certification from both EASA and the Federal Aviation Administration for safety, environmental and installation standards.
