Satcom Direct announced here at the NBAA Expo that it has signed an agreement to work with Honeywell International to provide flight support and cabin communications services in a single package. Some of the in-flight service features include flight planning information, reliable e-mail and data communications connectivity, and satellite television. "This joint effort offers aircraft operators increased flexibility in choosing services to meet their specific business requirements," the company said.
In addition, by purchasing flight support and cabin communications services as a comprehensive package, the companies say they will save time and money for the operators. "Working with Honeywell on this package allows us to combine Satcom Direct's strength in delivering satellite-based service solutions with the integrity and recognition of the Honeywell name," said Jim Jensen, founder and owner of Satcom Direct. "Our focus at Satcom Direct is to deliver unparalleled technology and customer support that ensures private aviation travelers and all of our customers receive the connectivity they need, when and where they need it." Satcom Direct will now handle support and account management of Honeywell's existing cabin services, including OneLink, OneView, and JetMapII.
