Fractional aircraft ownership company NetJets will equip more than 250 of its midsize and large-cabin aircraft with High-Speed Internet Systems from Aircell, the companies announced Thursday. Installations begin this month.
Aircell said the program with NetJets represents the largest order for high-speed Internet service in the history of business aviation. NetJets plans to have all future fleet aircraft, including light cabin models, delivered from the factory with high speed Internet service.
“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,” said David Sokol, NetJets chairman and CEO.
