May 22, 2017 – Honeywell has been selected by Embraer to upgrade its Lineage 1000E Executive Jets with JetWave satellite communications hardware to provide global, high-speed wi-fi via Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX service.
Honeywell’s JetWave system will receive initial aircraft installation certification at the beginning of 2018, which will boost Embraer’s Lineage 1000E platform. Available as forward-fit and retrofit options, JetWave hardware enables a global Ka-band connection from the Jet ConneX service.
“Our Jet ConneX service can support multiple passengers streaming video, simultaneously, anywhere the Linage flies,” said Kurt Weidemeyer, vice president of business aviation at Inmarsat. “It means everyone can watch what they like, when they like, where they like.”
