Honeywell is highlighting changes to several maintenance and connectivity products – tweaks the company says give customers better control over onboard data usage, helping them cut costs.

The company has shifted its maintenance service plan to a "usage-based" model under which Honeywell will give customers engine maintenance discounts up to 10%.

Discounts will reflect flight factors that reduce engine wear, such as flight length and throttle settings, Honeywell says.

Customers can track performance and maintenance savings via Honeywell's GoDirect maintenance portal, it says.

Likewise, customers who use Honeywell's JetConnex in-flight connectivity system can use the GoDirect Data Control system to slash an average of 30% from data usage costs, Honeywell says.

GoDirect Data Control predicts how much data an aircraft will use in flight, which can let operators chose the most economic data package.

Honeywell is also calling attention to FalconConnect, an in-flight entertainment system powered by GoDirect.
