VistaJet Globals to debut new satcomm system

VistaJet’s fleet of 36 Globals will be the first aircraft to be equipped with the LuxStream high-speed satellite communications system developed by Collins Aerospace. Vista Global, VistaJet’s parent is the launch customer for the new system which will provide global coverage and allow passengers to use multiple devices while onboard streaming. The system will provide download speeds of up to 25mbps over the USA and up to 15mbps elsewhere. The system will use the Ku-band satellites operated by SES. LeAnn Ridgeway, VP Information Management Services for Collins noted that “In-flight connectivity is often cited by operators as the most important experience to provide on board, especially for long-range flights. By working with SES to bring LuxStream to the business aviation segment, we’re meeting that need by providing speeds and services that are unparalleled in the industry.”
