Two more of RoyalJet’s BBJs are being fitted with Ka-band high-speed internet connectivity. The antenna system and operating software were again delivered by Honeywell. RoyalJet has two other aircraft with the equipment, including another BBJ.
“Having the latest Ka-band technology on board four of our unique aircraft is yet another proud achievement for us and evidence of our continuing mission to remain the global reference in premium private aviation,” said Rob DiCastri, CEO at RoyalJet. “Our customers have been delighted with the Ka-band system since we introduced it to the BBJ market four years ago, so we are very excited to give them two more options to choose from. We couldn’t have accomplished this without like-minded partners, such as Honeywell, that share in our philosophy to deliver only the best aviation solutions available in the market.”
The new system is being installed on both aircraft by Switzerland-based AMAC Aerospace, an expert in the MRO, modification and completion of VVIP aircraft, and also a long-term partner of RoyalJet. The first aircraft has recently been completed and has entered back into service. The second is to follow after its full interior refurbishment is completed by AMAC.
As of today, RoyalJet’s fleet consists of 10 aircraft, including eight BBJs.
