SmartSky adds to installation partners with Banyan Air Service


SmartSky Networks, an air-to-ground inflight connectivity provider, announced Banyan Air Service as a new sales and installation partner. The MRO provider, based in Florida, can install the connectivity solution on private jets and turboprop aircraft.

“We are proud to provide more services than any other aircraft support facility in Florida and are committed to offering our customers the latest and greatest enhancements to their aircraft,” said Danny Santiago, director of avionics for Banyan Air Service. “As a sales and installation partner for SmartSky, we have experienced the system for ourselves. We are pleased to say it delivers an impressive connectivity experience, as advertised, and we are excited to bring this game-changing product to our customers, especially streaming-level performance for smaller corporate jets.”

Banyan is authorised to install the SmartSky Flagship system on mid to large cabin jets, and SmartSky Lite, a streaming-level connectivity solution for smaller business aircraft.

Based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Banyan is an FAA- and EASA-approved repair station and has earned repair station designations and approvals for more than 10 countries. It offers 24-hour, full-service operations for aircraft owners, charter operators, corporate flight departments, flight schools, and government agencies.

“Banyan is one of the most highly regarded aircraft service facilities in the country and is known for offering their customers world-class service as evidenced by their industry accolades year after year,” said Aria Bahawdory, director of MRO account management for SmartSky. “This expertise makes Banyan the perfect fit to meet the growing demand for SmartSky’s industry-leading inflight connectivity performance. Customers in the business aviation marketplace are demanding best-in-class service, and SmartSky delivers.”
