African first for JetWave

In a first of its kind in Africa, ExecuJet South Africa has installed Honeywell’s JetWave hardware on-board a Global Express and Challenger 604 aircraft at its Johannesburg base.

“ExecuJet South Africa is committed to delivering best-in-class aviation services, and we recognise the importance of reliable in-flight connectivity to heighten the passenger experience and modernize flight operations,” said Warwick Stone, MRO business development manager, ExecuJet South Africa. “We look forward to continuing to work with Honeywell to provide our customers with the benefits of reliable, global, high-speed, in-flight Wi-Fi.”

ExecuJet South Africa is also among the first to offer “Fly Away” installations of the JetWave hardware on select aircraft platforms. By offering turnkey installations in fewer than 15 days, aircraft downtime is reduced to install this next-generation connectivity solution and passengers can benefit from increased productivity and seamless in-flight Wi-Fi in the air.

“As Africa’s aviation industry expands, we are welcoming a growing number of business aviation users, and with them comes a greater need for reliable, high-speed in-flight connectivity,” said Rudolph Louw, aerospace leader – Africa, Honeywell. “As an industry leader in Connected Aircraft technologies, our JetWave hardware is designed to significantly upgrade the connectivity on-board these jets, enhancing the experience of passengers, pilots, flight crews and aircraft operators. These installations in South Africa illustrate the truly global nature and reach of our connectivity solution and satellite network.”
