As part of an ongoing refurbishment of its Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) fleet, Abu Dhabi-headquartered, premium private aviation company RoyalJet, is to upgrade a further two aircraft with in-flight connectivity.
Swiss-based AMAC Aerospace has already installed high-speed Ka-band Wi-Fi from Honeywell on one of the aircraft and is further responsible for upgrading the connectivity, cabin systems and all cabin furnishings in the other, the design for which has been conceived by Abu Dhabi-based Slash Design.
These aircraft will be the third and fourth BBJs in the RoyalJet fleet to provide customers with the highest speed of in-flight connectivity available on the market.
“Having the latest Ka-band technology on board four of our unique aircraft is yet another proud achievement for us and evidence of our continuing mission to remain the global reference in premium private aviation. Our customers have been delighted with the Ka band system since we introduced it to the BBJ market four years ago, so we are very excited to give them two more options to choose from. We couldn’t have accomplished this without like-minded partners, such as Honeywell, that share in our philosophy to deliver only the best aviation solutions available in the market,” said Rob DiCastri, CEO, RoyalJet.
The first aircraft has recently been completed and entered back into service, with the second to follow after its full interior refurbishment is also completed by AMAC.
RoyalJet’s fleet currently consists of ten aircraft with a total of eight BBJs, making the company the largest operator of Boeing Business Jets in the world.
