Gulfstream has received approval from the FAA for installation of the Satcom Direct Router, an enhancement that simplifies cabin communications on Gulfstream G550 and G450 aircraft.

“This equipment elevates the airborne office to the next level,” says senior vp Mike West. “The addition of a smart router allows for more communications options in the cabin, including Satcom Direct's GlobalVT, which allows passengers to use their personal smartphones to call and text in-flight.

“Just as they would if they were on the ground, outgoing calls show the passengers' personal phone number and incoming calls display the number of the person calling them. This voice and text functionality is seamless, secure and available at any altitude, virtually anywhere in the world.”

The technology comes as standard on new G450 and G550 models and is available as a retrofit for those already in service.
