Royal Jet Installs Honeywell Solutions on New 34-Seat Boeing 737-700 Business Jet

Royal Jet has installed Honeywells JetWave Ka-band satellite connectivity hardware and GoDirect Cabin Connectivity services on its new 34-seat, custom-made Boeing Business Jet.

The Boeing 737-700 is the first of its kind to be installed with JetWave hardware, enabling the aircraft to connect to Inmarsats Global Xpress Ka-band satellite network to allow passengers to stream video, download large files and do more through the Jet ConneX service - even when flying over the ocean.

Also, with access to Honeywells GoDirect Cabin Connectivity services, Royal Jets flight crews and maintenance teams have all the information they need to better manage the airplanes connectivity network. This reduces the need for third-party support by giving the operator control over data usage, billing and network troubleshooting.

Royal Jet is pleased to operate the worlds first BBJ equipped with Inmarsat high-speed Ka-band Wi-Fi enabled by Honeywells JetWave hardware, said Rob DiCastri, president and CEO, Royal Jet. Combined with Honeywells GoDirect Cabin Connectivity services, we have the tools we need to expand the cabin experience for our customers, while providing flight crews and maintenance teams with an effective solution to control connectivity needs across the network.

Honeywells JetWave hardware was fitted on Royal Jets Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737-700 by Lufthansa Technik.
