Honeywell becomes GX Aviation reseller


Honeywell Aerospace has announced that it is entering the airlines cabin services market as a value-added reseller for Inmarsat’s GX Aviation in-flight broadband service, a deal intended to expand Honeywell’s Connected Aircraft offerings around the globe. Honeywell will remain the exclusive provider of the company’s JetWave hardware and GoDirect software and services.

Honeywell and Inmarsat will continue to work closely on pursuing new customers and serving existing ones in the satellite communications space. According to the companies, the rapid growth of Inmarsat’s GX Aviation Ka-Band inflight wi-fi service in recent years has enabled them to create a large installed base and drive global demand.

Ben Driggs, president of services & connectivity at Honeywell Aerospace stated, “This announcement gives us the ability to market Honeywell’s multitude of GoDirect Connected Aircraft services on top of hardware directly to airline customers. This capability builds on our existing and highly successful direct-selling of connectivity services to the business aviation market.”

This change aligns with Honeywell’s success in the business jet sector, where it has enjoyed subscriber growth of more than 300% growth over the past 18 months.
