Commenting on the announcement, Siegfried Axtmann, FAI Aviation Group Founder and Chairman, said: “We are honoured to be appointed as an authorised Honeywell Channel Partner. Their innovative solutions are highly regarded across the globe and as such, this collaboration is a significant agreement for the company. We are increasingly being asked by our customers for options for CMS and IFE upgrades on mid to large size business aircraft so the new arrangement will enable FAI Technik to considerably broaden its offering which in turn will benefit our customers.”
Nuremberg-based FAI Technik is globally recognised for its ability to install the latest cabin management (CMS)/in-flight entertainment (IFE) technology and high-speed connectivity. This includes interface units which enable cabin functions to be operated from a smartphone. As such, customers can easily access a broad range of movies (or music) which can be viewed from multiple, wide screen, high definition monitors. Complementing this is a state-of-the-art surround sound system offering a superb acoustic experience while in the air. FAI Technik also installs KA-Band solutions which enable seamless high-speed in-flight connectivity providing passengers with enhanced IFE and maximum business productivity.
