Technology is revolutionizing the way passengers travel with private jets.
Although it was at first to save time, today the technological progresses make it possible to have a real flying office for business passengers.
In-flight internet access is no longer considered as optional on private aircraft: it is a necessary tool, expected by the passengers, especially to improve their in-flight productivity. The three main uses of internet on board are:
– E-mail consultation,
– Web browsing,
– Communication on social networks.
The average internet speed is 55 MPS on the ground, and 1.7/2.0 in flight. The introduction of satellite systems using the Ka band is at the heart of the discussions among market players. The Ka band allows a faster and cheaper internet access for aircraft manufacturers.
Bombardier is the first manufacturer to have equipped its new business jets, including the Challenger 650 (mid-range and long-haul) with this technology, allowing high speed internet access. By 2030, 98% of business jets will have a wifi access.
When you book your private jet, do not hesitate to tell us if you need an internet connection on board.
