First Global 6000 JetWave Ka-band installation for Jet Aviation in Geneva

A Bombardier Global 6000 has been fitted with Honeywell’s JetWave satcom system at Jet Aviation in Geneva, Switzerland – the company’s first such installation. A second Global 6000 JetWave project is set for May 2018.

The technology provides broadband connectivity using Inmarsat Aviation’s GX Ka-band network. This internet connection enables passengers and crew to make intercontinental calls, email, browse the web and stream live video.

“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, vice president of regional operations for Europe and site operations leader/general manager of Jet Aviation’s Geneva MRO and FBO.

“The JetWave terminals are designed for easy installation and maintenance, which limits the aircraft’s downtime, and provide significant benefits in terms of inflight 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.”

“We are delighted with the results of this installation,” said Guillaume Blache, aircraft manager. “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 USA, during which the owner and crew enjoyed full connectivity and all of its benefits.”
