HONEYWELL CONNECTED AIRCRAFT SERVICES EMPOWER OJETS WITH HIGH-SPEED IN-FLIGHT CONNECTIVITY

SHANGHAI, April 18, 2018 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has been selected as the in-flight connectivity services provider by OJets, a private luxury jet service provider headquartered in Singapore, for its global fleet of business aircraft. Services include complete GoDirect® Datalink functionality as well as in-flight connectivity, enabled by Honeywell's JetWave hardware that powers Jet ConneX, Inmarsat's Ka-band network for business jets.

"OJets is redefining luxury travel by providing highly bespoke and optimized experiences for our clients from the conveniences of our private aircraft," said Nick Houseman, CEO, OJets. "It is important that our clients are empowered with reliable and high-speed in-flight connectivity for work or entertainment, all while enjoying a safe flight experience. We chose Honeywell given its global footprint and strong, reliable service 24/7 worldwide."

Honeywell's JetWave is the exclusive hardware that enables business aviation aircraft to connect to Inmarsat's Ka-band Jet ConneX, the first consistent high-speed broadband service to span the world. As a result, business jet operators and passengers can enjoy greatly improved productivity with in-flight Wi-Fi speeds up to 15 Mbps. Beyond providing high-speed in-flight cabin connectivity that will allow videoconferencing and TV on demand, OJets will also benefit from Honeywell's GoDirect Flight Services to increase efficiency and safety for pilots and passengers. GoDirect Flight is part of Honeywell's GoDirect family — the industry's comprehensive collection of more than 50 value-adding aviation services and applications. This includes GoDirect Weather and GoDirect Flight Planning for pilots to enhance decision-making and increase connectivity in the cockpit. In addition, pilots can view frequently cleared and optimized routes for enhanced aircraft performance, and even make adjustments while in the air.

"As the aviation industry shifts into the age of digitalization, customers are looking for an integrated solution provider that can offer connectivity, hardware, software and services to increase flight efficiency and safety," said Andy Gill, senior director, Business and General Aviation, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Aerospace. "By expanding the installations of JetWave, strengthening the capabilities of our GoDirect services, and investing in aftermarket customer support, Honeywell is becoming the go-to technology provider for all business aviation customer demands."

As an airborne satellite communications pioneer and leading technology developer, Honeywell is in a position to continue to provide operators like OJets with comprehensive global connectivity solutions, providing passengers with best-in-class in-flight connectivity service now and in the future. ​
