NetJets connectivity

Aircell, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity equipment and services to the business aviation market, has announced that NetJets is adding in-flight its internet service to nearly 100 additional aircraft in the fleet.

In 2010 the company elected to offer in-flight internet service aboard more than 250 aircraft – representing what Aircell believes to be business aviation’s largest-ever in-flight connectivity commitment.  The supplementary systems will expand NetJets’ connected fleet by approximately 40%.
With the service, NetJets' passengers and flight crews can enjoy high-speed internet capabilities above 10,000ft in continental US and portions of Alaska, using their own wi-fi enabled laptops, tablets, smartphones, electronic flight bags and other mobile devices.
“For both business and pleasure, our owners value the ability to stay connected while they travel”, said Chuck Suma, NetJets’ Senior Vice President, Aircraft Management.  “Connectivity is an integral part of our owner experience, and the decision to expand was driven by the needs of owners of our fractional share and card products.”  The entire retrofit programme is expected to be completed by mid-2014. www.netjets.com www.aircel.com
