Satcom Direct and Honeywell Join to Offer Complete Cabin Connectivity for Aircraft

Satellite Beach, Fla. (October 5, 2008) - Satcom Direct, a leading innovator of satellite voice, fax, and Internet data service solutions, announces it has signed an agreement to work with Honeywell International, a leader in cockpit and cabin management systems, to provide flight support and cabin communications services in a one-stop package.

Some of the service features contained within this comprehensive package include accurate flight planning information, reliable e-mail and data communications connectivity, and satellite television.

This joint effort offers aircraft operators increased flexibility in choosing services to meet their specific business requirements. In addition, by purchasing flight support and cabin communications services as a comprehensive package, operators save the time and cost of managing multiple contracts and suppliers. The new comprehensive package allows operators to purchase and utilize specific services separately from both Honeywell and Satcom Direct.

"Working with Honeywell on this package allows us to combine Satcom Direct's strength in delivering satellite-based service solutions with the integrity and recognition of the Honeywell name," said Jim Jensen, founder and owner of Satcom Direct. "Our focus at Satcom Direct is to deliver unparalleled technology and customer support that ensures private aviation travelers and all of our customers receive the connectivity they need, when and where they need it."

"This new agreement enables us to offer operators proven technologies and customer service capabilities that provide more value," said Rob Wilson, President of Honeywell Business and General Aviation. "We're offering a one-stop solution for staying connected seamlessly."

Along with the comprehensive package, Satcom Direct will now handle support and account management of Honeywell's existing cabin services, including OneLink(TM), OneView, and JetMapII(TM). "With Satcom Direct handling the support and service of these programs, it creates a further win-win solution for aircraft operators who already benefit from Satcom Direct and Honeywell's outstanding technology and global connectivity," said Wilson.
