Turkish operator MNG Jet has contracted Honeywell to install JetWave satellite communications hardware on its Challenger 605. This satellite communications installation enables high speed cabin wi-fi, via Inmarsat's Jet ConneX service. Additionally, it provides pilots with a better internet connection to support flight planning and management.
“We are committed to delivering a high quality and reliable service to our customers,” says Can Şaşmaz, MNG general manager. “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 some of the fastest broadband available in business aviation. Whether working in the air, staying close to family and friends on social media or streaming video series, passengers will benefit from reliable connectivity at speeds close to those found at home. This is enabled by CNX-900, an advanced routing software application suite.
“We are renowned for our connectivity solutions, such as our JetWave hardware,” says 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 of 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 offers operators line maintenance across select Honeywell APUs, engines and access to the latest retrofit, upgrades and modifications. To ensure local operators have the in-market support required, they can enrol in the Honeywell Maintenance Service Plan, an umbrella of services for business aviation.
