NBAA: Jetex collaborates with Honeywell on new Flight Support app

Posted 21 October 2013 · Add Comment

Jetex Flight Support has collaborated with Honeywell, to launch MyJETEX, an app for Apple platforms created to provide operators with dependable flight support solutions.

The launch of MyJETEX coincides with a growing trend towards the ‘consumerization of the cockpit’, where pilots, passengers and ground crews are increasing their adoption of personal devices across all aspects of flight.

The collaboration on the new app follows an agreement signed between both parties at EBACE 2013 in Geneva, where it was announced that Jetex is to offer Honeywell’s Global Data Center (GDC) flight support Services to its clients in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific for the first time.

The app interface combines the expertise of both companies with sophisticated software. Operators can now enjoy the convenience of planning and managing their worldwide trips via the app with flight planning, aircraft datalink, flight following and international trip support services. The app is one of a suite of tools being utilized jointly by Jetex and Honeywell to expand the GDC’s Flight Sentinel services worldwide. The enhanced Flight Sentinel services allows clients easy 24 hour access to flight dispatching and trip support experts in three locations worldwide.

“Our collaboration with Honeywell will enhance our service offering and bring us even closer to our clients" said Adel Mardini, president and CEO of Jetex. "We are very proud of this achievement ."

With personnel dedicated specifically to flight tracking, Honeywell’s GDC, gives Jetex’s clients the reassurance and efficiency they need to manage all aspects of their trip. Other services include air traffic services, global flight planning, text and graphical weather, trip support, mobile access, 24 hour operations and satellite datalink communications.

“The reality of a fully connected aircraft means our customers are telling us that they are using portable electronic devices before, during and after flights, for both personal and mission critical activities.” said Michael Edmonds, vice president of aerospace services at Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell and Jetex are responding to this trend by bringing critical flight support and international trip services to the iPad, ensuring that customers have easy access to the trip support they need, whenever and wherever they need it.”
In addition, Honeywell’s clients can now benefit from Jetex’s services in diverse locations including FBOs in Shannon, France and Dubai as well as lounges and facilities in various geographies. After-trip concierge services, fueling and ground support and travel arrangement are also Jetex’s areas of expertise.
