Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. will offer a bundled suit of in-flight internet, voice and entertainment offerings for its operators in a new program called Connectivity Service. The manufacturer said the program will include Satcom Direct as the exclusive provider of service plans for in-production and in-service aircraft.

“This new service will simplify and enhance the connectivity experience by seamlessly integrating all aspects of in-flight connectivity with the Gulfstream aircraft ownership experience,” said Derek Zimmerman, president of Gulfstream Product Support.

Bundle options will include Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX and SwiftBroadband and ViaSat’s Ku-band service. Flight-deck options will include a datalink service.
