North Carolina-based charter operator flyExclusive has selected SmartSky's inflight connectivity service for its growing fleet. flyExclusive plans to upgrade its Gogo-equipped aircraft to SmartSky, making it the first major fleet to bring passengers, crew and flight operations access to dependable, responsive and secure inflight connectivity.
flyExclusive president Tommy Sowers says: “In 2021, we invested heavily in modernising our fleet to deliver the ultimate private aviation experience. As we grow, our partnership with SmartSky will ensure unparalleled connectivity inflight for our customers and crews. After a thorough evaluation of alternatives, SmartSky was the right choice. We expect entry into service of our first SmartSky-equipped jets next quarter.”
“We're honoured to partner with flyExclusive and serve its customers and crews with our market-leading connected experience that makes real-time data transfer as accessible at 41,000 ft as it is on the ground," adds SmartSky Networks president Ryan Stone. "This marks another major SmartSky milestone as we continue down the path of delivering on the connected aircraft ecosystem.”
SmartSky's network is live and remains on track to provide full continental US coverage by the end of next quarter. The company has STCs covering many popular aircraft models already in hand, and many more models in development.
