Satcom Direct (SD) has signed a preferred supplier agreement with Luxaviation Group, under which it will provide connectivity solutions to the global Luxaviation fleet.
The scalable offering meets the specific connectivity needs, missions, and budget requirements of each individual Luxaviation aircraft.
The agreement provides access to high-speed data as well as SD FlightDeck Freedom which brings datalink functionality, improving situational awareness and flight deck communications for the crew. Supporting the arrangement Inmarsat’s Jet Connex and SwiftBroadband services enhance passenger productivity, or relaxation, through high-speed cabin Wi-Fi capabilities, as well as bolstering crew operations.
Stuart Williamson, Chief Operating Officer of Luxaviation’s Business Aviation Support Services Division commented: “The ability to tailor the offering for each customer, and the responsive, global, pro-active customer service team, which has shown it meets and exceeds the needs of our clients, influenced our decision to switch to SD as our preferred supplier.”
SD is also working with Luxaviation to optimise the expanding suite of SD Cybersecurity solutions, accessed through SD Pro, the digital flight operations dashboard. “Finalising this agreement with Luxaviation highlights that our approach of creating tailored solutions, blended with genuinely expert customer service is extremely important to the end clients. We recognise value is not simply budget related, and the ability to package services to effectively support the differing requirements of an international mixed fleet, demonstrates the many advantages of the SD eco-system,” said Michael Skou Christensen, Senior Vice President, SD International.
“SD puts customers first in terms of productivity, entertainment, and flight efficiency, and Luxaviation recognises the significance of this to their successful operations. It is a tribute to our global team, their hard work, and dedication, that this deal has been ratified, and I’m extremely proud of them. I know that the team is as excited as I am to build upon this relationship and begin the next chapter with Luxaviation.”
