Honeywell achieved final certification from Inmarsat for JetWave, the company’s package of exclusive hardware that will allow pilots, passengers, operators and maintenance personnel to connect to GX Aviation, the revolutionary new in-flight broadband service from Inmarsat. Users can consistently and more quickly surf the Internet, check emails, stream music and videos, and shop online without drop-off throughout their flight, even when flying over oceans.

The final type approval certificate confirms that the system functions as designed and completes the process to bring GX Aviation to the aerospace market. The certification centers in operation in all environmental conditions with Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) satellite network, which comprises three satellites already has been launched and is functioning. This ensures that passengers, pilots and other airline personnel have access to high-speed, consistent and reliable broadband service by GX Aviation on flights worldwide, with speeds similar to those experienced at home or in the office.
