Honeywell Installs First In-Flight Wi-Fi System in Africa
Honeywell has confirmed that ExecuJet South Africa, a private aviation jet company, was the first to install Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications hardware in Africa, bringing In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) to African business jets for the first time.
ExecuJet installed JetWave onboard its Bombardier Global Express and Challenger 604 aircrafts at its Johannesburg base. JetWave delivers access to Ka-band satellite communications network, provided by Inmarsat through its Jet ConneX service.
Separately, Honeywell has appointed Torsten Pilz senior vice president and chief supply chain officer. He will report to Chairman and CEO Darius Adamczyk and serve as a company officer. Pilz most recently served as vice president of supply chain for SpaceX and, prior to that, vice president of worldwide operations for Amazon.
