On the latest episode of the Global Connected Aircraft Podcast, I spoke with VistaJet Chief Operating Officer Nick Van der Meer.

VistaJet will be launching a brand new customized in-flight connectivity service across its fleet of 116 aircraft (combined with XOJet’s fleet after their acquisition) in the near future.

Luxstream is powered by the SES Ku-band satellite network, distributed by Collins Aerospace’s ARINCDirect portfolio of services.

The LuxStream system promises to enable the following:

  • 24/7 digital connectivity in-flight with the ability for simultaneous streaming of ultra HD content and access to their full-suite of connected devices;
  • A unique service offering the highest in-flight bandwidth available;
  • Up to 25 Mbps in the United States and 15 Mbps globally.

Look out for more in-depth coverage of the new LuxStream technology coming up in the October 2019 digital/print edition of Avionics International.
