Zetta Jet has chosen ViaSat to supply its fleet of Bombardier Global ultra-long-range business aircraft with its Ka- and Ku-band in-flight connectivity (IFC).
Designed to serve either leisure passenger needs or ‘office in the sky’ applications, ViaSat's IFC solution allows passengers to live-stream videos, send and receive emails, establish VPN connections and participate in video conferencing and VoIP phone calls.
“By partnering with ViaSat we are offering a ‘best-in-service’ in-flight internet system, which aligns with our goal in providing unique, personalised guest experiences that leverage the best amenities for today's business and luxury traveller,” commented Geoffery Cassidy, Zetta Jet’s managing director. “With ViaSat's in-flight internet service, we are enabling our customers to experience faster and more reliable in-flight connectivity and stay connected throughout their journey, as they would do in the office or at home.”
“Zetta Jet's customers are already enjoying the full benefits of the global capabilities of the ViaSat in-flight connectivity system,” declared Ken Peterman, SVP and general manager, ViaSat. “In fact, we've seen record usage on ViaSat's network with over 40 GB consumed on one business jet in one month. This speaks to the power of our global network and our ability to provide a fast, reliable in-flight internet experience to Zetta Jet's premier customer base.”
