NetJets To Add Aircell High Speed Internet To Fleet

by Mike Godfrey,, Washington

04 August 2010

Aircell announced on July 29 that it had secured an agreement to provide NetJets, the market leader in fractional aircraft ownership, with its high speed Internet technology, to be integrated starting August, to more than 250 of NetJets’ midsize and large-cabin aircraft.

Aircell's program with NetJets represents the largest order for a high-speed Internet service solution in the history of business aviation. Netjets has said it plans to have all future fleet aircraft, including light cabin models, fitted with high speed Internet capability.

David Sokol, NetJets' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: "With the Internet at the center of business and personal lives, a full-speed connection has become an expected service for busy people who travel. NetJets owners are some of the most accomplished and productive people in the world and I know they will appreciate the added option to stay connected while onboard their aircraft."

With Aircell high speed Internet, NetJets owners will be able to access the Internet with any Wi-Fi equipped laptop, notebook computer, or other personal electronic device at speeds that are similar to wireless mobile broadband on the ground. They can send and receive real-time emails with attachments, transfer large files, connect to corporate VPNs, access online publications, listen to the latest podcasts, or even download music to enjoy at 41,000 feet.

John Wade, Aircell's Executive Vice President and General Manager, said: "We're honored to continue our multi-year relationship with NetJets. Aircell High Speed Internet will dramatically transform the travel experience for NetJets owners. They can be productive en route and hit the ground running, instead of scrambling to catch up with all the things they missed since takeoff.”
