Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Geneva recently installed its first Honeywell JetWave satellite communications hardware system in a Global 6000. The JetWave satellite terminals operate on Inmarsat Aviation’s GX Ka-band network to provide high-speed broadband connectivity. Jet Aviation has agreed to do a second such installation on a Global 6000 in May 2018. 

By enabling high-speed internet connection, the JetWave satellite communications technology ensures crews and passengers can make inter-continental telephone calls, send emails, surf the internet and stream live video, improving flight safety and operations, while enhancing the flight experience.

“There is strong demand in business aviation for fast and reliable inflight Wi-Fi capability, which we are delighted to make possible in cooperation with Honeywell,” said Cyril Martiniere, VP Regional Operations Europe and Site Operations Leader / GM Geneva MRO & FBO. “The JetWave terminals are designed for easy installation and maintenance, which limits the aircraft’s downtime, and provide significant benefits in terms of in-flight productivity and entertainment. We installed the KA-band system in combination with a Honeywell CNX-900 Router and greatly appreciate Honeywell’s professional support and cooperation in helping our team of aviation experts develop and distinguish their skills and competencies.”
Aircraft Manager Guillaume Blache said, “We are delighted with the results of this installation. The owner needed the work to be completed in 21 days, and Jet Aviation delivered its first installation ahead of schedule. The aircraft’s first flight following the installation was to the U.S., during which the owner and crew enjoyed full connectivity and all of its benefits.”

Jet Aviation’s MRO facility in Geneva offers full heavy maintenance services for Bombardier Global Express series, Gulfstream aircraft and Boeing BBJ. Last year, the facility conducted its first Honeywell DU-875 ELITE cockpit display upgrade on a large-cabin, ultra-long-range Global Express XRS.
