Private aviation operator Volato and SmartSky have agreed to equip Volato’s HondaJet fractional fleet with SmartSky’s next-generation in-flight Wi-Fi technology.
SmartSky says the agreement between the two companies includes the installation of SmartSky LITE™ systems on new Volato HondaJets, with the option to upgrade existing aircraft.
Ryan Stone, President of SmartSky commented: “Partnering with an operator like Volato is especially exciting because of the excellence and efficiency it demonstrates in all of its private aviation services. It is fitting for Volato customers to soon experience the kind of connectivity that makes flying more productive and enjoyable so that they land happy.
“Whether on smaller airframes or larger cabins, SmartSky users experience the same streaming-level performance from the most advanced in-flight connectivity ever built.”
Mike Prachar, Chief Operating Officer of Volato said: “Outstanding customer experience is a critical point of differentiation for Volato, and in-flight Wi-Fi with streaming-level performance is a very important part of that overall experience.
“After evaluating the available options for Wi-Fi for our fleet, SmartSky demonstrated the capability to deliver the high-quality connected experience our customers expect. We were also attracted to the fact that its software-defined features will allow us to keep up with new technology developments without requiring new hardware so we can keep our customers flying with no disruptions to service or the latest in-flight Wi-Fi speeds.”
