AT&T and Honeywell to Redefine the Air Travel Experience With World-class, High-speed Wireless Internet

April 30, 2014 Technology No Comments Email Email

Honeywell Aerospace will be the exclusive hardware provider of domestic air-to-ground communication for AT&T’s planned in-flight connectivity services, which will bring faster Wi-Fi to passengers on commercial airlines and business jets.

With the new 4G LTE service, passengers will experience speeds that are a significant improvement from today’s air-to-ground speeds. The service is anticipated to become available as early as the end of 2015.

Under terms of an agreement in principle with AT&T, Honeywell will build and deliver, on an exclusive basis, aircraft hardware needed to connect AT&T’s planned air-to-ground system in the U.S. With the new service, passengers will be able to enjoy 4G LTE’s fast and dependable connections to watch video, text with family and friends, and access quicker speeds to surf the internet. This system is being developed so that it can integrate with Honeywell’s GX and L-Band satellite systems, allowing true regional and potentially global connectivity for passengers, crew and operations personnel.

“Honeywell has established itself not only as a technology development leader, but as the company that fully understands consumers’ desires to stay connected whether at home, in the office or car, and in-flight through the Connected Aircraft,” saidTim Mahoney, president and CEO of Honeywell Aerospace. “AT&T’s industry leadership in consumer communications, coupled with Honeywell’s expertise in aviation, satellite communications and now the connected home and the connected aircraft is the perfect match to meet the growing connectivity requirements in a rising market.”
