JetSuiteX is to become the first carrier to offer SmartSky Networks’ in-flight internet solution, with plans to launch the service in late summer 2019 with a phased roll-out across their rapidly growing fleet.
According to Alex Wilcox, Co-founder and CEO of JetSuiteX: “After a rigorous selection process including my personal in-flight evaluation, we chose SmartSky’s state-of-the-art, high-speed technology because it delivers the most compelling user experience.”
He added: “Through our partnership, JetSuiteX will once again disrupt the status quo, this time by enabling our customers to stay just as productive while in flight as they are on the ground. Not only does this underscore our commitment to providing the most innovative air travel solution in the industry, it allows our customers to empty their inbox or share as many #jetsuitex selfies as they wish while still in the air!”
“JetSuiteX believes in empowering its customers with extreme efficiency, already cutting significant time from the typical airport experience and earning it the highest Net Promoter Score of any air carrier in the world,” said Haynes Griffin, Chairman and CEO of SmartSky Networks. “Our role is to support JetSuiteX’s continued dominance as the industry’s leader of passenger satisfaction.”
SmartSky’s real-time internet system provides 10 times the speed of legacy airborne connections. The ground-based components of the system are being deployed throughout the contiguous US using a mix of 4G LTE and emerging 5G technologies, similar to some of the recent improvements in terrestrial cellular networks.
