UAS, Honeywell, and Hongkong Jet to sign partnership deal at ABACE 2019

Shanghai, April 16: UAS International Trip Support and Honeywell are joining forces to
provide global connectivity to the business jet fleet of leading Asia Pacific business aviation
charter and management group Hongkong Jet with the implementation of UAS LinkEvolution
for flight services and communication combined with Honeywell GoDirect cabin services for
passenger connectivity.
The agreement will be formalised at a signing ceremony on the opening day of ABACE 2019
on Tuesday April 16 th at 2 pm – on UAS booth A123.
UAS LinkEvolution provides seamless global connectivity to the cockpit using powerful datalink
satellite communications networks. The forward-looking datalink solution delivers worldwide
ACARS (datalink) service, as well as unlimited access to all worldwide VHF networks, including
ARINC and SITA, as well as Inmarsat and Iridium satellite networks. It will also enable
Hongkong Jet’s fleet of several Gulfstream G650/G550, Falcon 8X, BBJ’s, and ACJ319 aircraft to
keep abreast of datalink regulations and remain compliant, regardless of where the aircraft are
flying.
UAS’ technology partner Honeywell is a global leader in the datalink-satellite communications
arena, ensuring UAS’ offering is world-class.

The strategic alliance between the two companies originated in May 2017, when UAS
International Trip Support and Honeywell ratified a partnership to expand Honeywell's flight
deck and cabin connectivity services through UAS LinkEvolution.
The benefits of using this communications technology include a single-vendor solution for the
entire fleet; unlimited datalink communications over all VHF and satellite networks with no per
kilobit charges or satellite premiums and reliable, 24/7 technical support, powered by
Honeywell.
Omar Hosari, UAS Co-Owner/Founder and CEO said: “UAS is incredibly proud of the success
we’ve had in promoting UAS LinkEvolution globally. We have been delivering cost-efficiency
and reliability to operators since we began this partnership with Honeywell. we’re delighted to
introduce Hongkong Jet to this technology and are confident their experience will be
overwhelmingly positive. “
“Honeywell GoDirect will provide cabin connectivity service for Hongkong Jet’s fleet, including
Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX Ka Band service that runs on Honeywell’s JetWave terminal.” said John
Peterson, Vice President, Service and Connectivity, Honeywell Aerospace. “GoDirect offers a full

of the user experience in the cabin to provide passengers with the connectivity they desire

support team assures customer connectivity issues are addressed quickly and correctly.”

unique flight deck communication requirements. It was a natural choice to make the switch,
both in terms of performance and cost-efficiency. At Hongkong Jet we pride ourselves on being
a well-informed, passionate team of experts who focus our undivided attention on providing
business jet owners with a safe, professional, personal and proactive service that allows each
