Passengers on a G650 registered in Brazil can now enjoy live TV and video streaming, wi-fi on multiple PEDs, and voice and text services wherever they fly, because Satcom Direct (SD) has activated Inmarsat’s Ka-band Jet ConneX technology on the aircraft. The onboard Satcom Direct Router is designed to maximize the aircraft’s connection to Inmarsat’s satellite network.
“Jet ConneX means you’ll never miss a football match, an important email or a Facetime call from your family while in the air,” said Ewerton Libanio, managing director of SD Brazil. “We understand how important it is to have a reliable internet connection and following this, our first South American activation, we anticipate there will be more to follow as the region’s executive aviation market continues to develop.”
