Flight planning and support group Jetex Flight Support forged a new alliance with Honeywell to jointly offer their flight-planning, aircraft datalink, flight-following and international trip support services, the companies announced today at EBACE.
Under the terms of the agreement, Dubai-based Jetex will re-sell Honeywell’s Global Data Center (GDC) flight support services, including a specialized version of Honeywell’s Flight Sentinel system offered to Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific customers for the first time. Honeywell’s Flight Sentinel team monitors airspace and ATC initiatives to ensure on-time departure. En route, it informs the crew of any weather change via datalink. So far Flight Sentinel has been offered only in North America.
In return, Honeywell customers will benefit from Jetex’s international trip-planning services. They will get local 24-hour expert support for flight logistics and after-trip concierge care.
The services are expected to be available by the fourth quarter of this year. GDC services can be accessed via the myGDC iPad application. An updated Honeywell-Jetex app is to launch in the fourth quarter.
