For the first time in Turkey, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has supported channel partner MNG Jet in installing Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications hardware on MNG Jet’s Bombardier Challenger 605. This satellite communications installation enables high-speed cabin Wi-Fi, via Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX service, for a better passenger connectivity experience. Additionally, it provides pilots with a better internet connection to support flight planning and management.
“MNG Jet is committed to delivering a high-quality and reliable service to its customers,” said Can Şaşmaz, general manager, MNG Jet. “We understand that in-flight connectivity is of paramount importance to both passengers and operators. We selected Honeywell’s JetWave to provide our customers with an exceptional connectivity – one that offers passengers consistent, high-speed wireless connectivity, virtually anywhere in the world.”
Honeywell’s JetWave hardware enables a connection to the fastest broadband available in business aviation. Whether working in the air, staying close to family and friends on social media, or streaming their favourite video series, passengers will benefit from reliable connectivity at speeds like those found at home. This is enabled by the CNX-900, one of the most advanced routing software application suites offered today.
“Honeywell is renowned for its superior connectivity solutions, such as our JetWave hardware,” said Serdar Cetingul, leader for Turkey and Central Eastern Europe, Honeywell Aerospace. “Following this successful installation, we look forward to seeing more business jet operators in Turkey reaping the rewards of high-speed, reliable in-flight connectivity. We have a long history working with MNG Jet as one of our channel partners, and its ability to provide similar future installations of JetWave in Turkey will reduce the need for aircraft operators to travel long distances to upgrade their aircraft.”
As a Honeywell channel partner, MNG Jet can offer business jet operators in Turkey a local base to install JetWave, in addition to other Honeywell services to support operators in the market. MNG Jet offers operators line maintenance across select Honeywell auxiliary power units, engines and access to the latest retrofit, upgrades and modifications. To ensure local operators have the in-market support required, they can enroll in the Honeywell Maintenance Service Plan, an umbrella of services for business aviation.
