Honeywell brings GoDirect services together in one portal
Aircraft operators using Honeywell flight tracking, cabin connectivity, maintenance and service plans can now access these through a combined online desktop and mobile portal.

Honeywell is aiming to make flight operations more efficient by introducing an online portal with a new look that helps operators perform multiple tasks and manage flights from start to finish, all from one interface. Honeywell's new GoDirect portal provides flight, tracking and cabin connectivity service customers with a single log-in. This links previously separate portals to help with flight tracking, planning and managing cabin services and connectivity usage. Now, multiple users can view and update aircraft and flight information in real time, via a mobile-optimised website.

“There are a lot of people and processes involved in making sure every flight is safe, on time and comfortable,” says John Peterson, senior director of Connectivity Services, Honeywell Aerospace. “Like a symphony orchestra with one person out of key, one problem in the flight planning process can have a negative domino effect and cause delays. With the GoDirect Portal, pilots, operators and maintenance crews have a central location for all their flight information. The result is a flight that's perfectly in key.”

A sudden change or delay in receiving information can upset the balance of flight operations, costing operators time and money. Honeywell's GoDirect portal greatly simplifies flight planning and management workflows, helping dispatchers and flight crews access and update flight information in real time. It also shows cabin service and connectivity usage, so operators and maintenance crews are aware of the status of each aircraft in their fleet and can control service usage to help cut costs. GoDirect Flight Services, including GoDirect portal, is part of Honeywell's GoDirect family, a portfolio of more than 50 value-adding aviation services and applications that provide operators, flight crews and maintenance teams with critical information to control their services and network. All GoDirect Flight Service customers have access to GoDirect Flight Bag Pro, an electronic flight bag application from Honeywell.

The GoDirect router was introduced in March this year.
