Following hard on the heels of LABACE, the business aviation connectivity company Satcom Direct (SD) has become the first service provider to activate the Inmarsat Jet ConneX technology for a Brazilian registered executive aircraft. The privately owned Gulfstream G650, based in São Paulo, will begin using the service in September.

The activation of the Jet ConneX, Ka-band technology will enable passengers and crew to maximize high-speed data transfers to support a variety of functionality. Live video and TV streaming, WiFi internet capability across multiple personal devices, video conferencing, as well as voice and text services, will all be available, across the globe.

The always-on connectivity is provided through the on-board Satcom Direct Router, SDR™ which maximises the cabin’s connection to the Inmarsat Global Xpress satellite network. The SDR also facilitates the use of SD value-added technologies, providing increased control and functionality of the cabin Wi-Fi network.

“Jet ConneX means you’ll never miss a football match, an important email or a Facetime call from your family while in the air. We understand how important it is to have a reliable internet connection and following this, our first South American activation, we anticipate there will be more to follow as the region’s executive aviation market continues to develop.” said Ewerton Libanio, Managing Director of SD Brazil.

SD was one of the first companies to activate the Jet ConneX service for business aviation customers over the entire Global Xpress (GX) network in June 2016. Jet ConneX is the only globally available, high-speed internet solution available today for business jets.
