Satair to distribute Honeywell's JetWave in-flight wi-fi
A typical passenger aircraft is made up of approximately three million different parts. Satair supports the complete aircraft life cycle and now it has added JetWave connectivity to its portfolio.

Danish aftermarket supplier Satair has signed an agreement with Honeywell Aerospace to distribute its JetWave high-speed in-flight connectivity system to a wide segment of the global business jet market.

JetWave is a communication system that operates with the Inmarsat satellite network to deliver high-speed internet into the cabin to connect multiple devices. It allows travellers to keep in touch with their business teams, stream live TV and join video conferences around the world from take-off to touchdown. Satair will distribute JetWave to Honeywell's EMEA and India dealers, as well as Part 145 facilities that undertake the installation work and are not part of the Honeywell network.

Because Satair has invested in a large pool of full ship sets of JetWave stock and will hold a certain inventory level of all Honeywell JetWave components, it will be able to offer immediate delivery, thus minimising downtime during installation.

This new agreement with Honeywell Aerospace for the business jet market builds on several other product lines that Satair also distributes to this sector. This includes the ADS-B Out upgrade programme on Honeywell Primus-equipped business aircraft and several Honeywell Sensing product lines.

Satair business development director Allan Riis comments: “We are delighted that Honeywell continues to trust Satair to deliver great service to the business and general aviation market. We now have dedicated single point of contact (SPOC) order desks for Jetwave and other business aviation products and we see Jetwave as part of a continuous journey by Satair into the important business and general aviation market.”

“We are very pleased to further expand our relationship with Satair,” adds Honeywell aftermarket services director, Middle East and Turkey, India and Africa Raghed Talih. “Our history of collaboration, especially on the Primus and ADS-B mandate programme, has demonstrated that Satair is a proactive and like-minded partner when bringing our products to market.”
