Honeywell Aerospace (Honeywell) has released a statement following news that AT&T is no longer planning to enter the in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) industry.
The statement read:“Unfortunately we have learned that AT&T has exited the in-flight connectivity services market and will no longer develop an air to ground wireless network to service passengers on commercial and business aircraft. Honeywell remains committed to bringing the connected aircraft to operators and passengers through our JetWave, Aspire, SkyConnect hardware, associated connectivity product offerings, and current service agreements. In the year to come we look forward to bringing the home and office wireless experience to the skies with the global introduction of GX Aviation in the latter half of 2015.”
Honeywell announced in April this year it was to be the exclusive hardware provider of domestic air-to-ground communication for AT&T’s planned in-flight connectivity services.
