The North American company Viasat announced the expansion of its connectivity coverage for executive jet flights in Brazil, for which it will use the capacity of the region’s state provider, Telebras. As explained by the operator, the additional space will come from its SGDC-1 Ka-band partner satellite.
With this expansion, the company will be able to offer its advanced connectivity service in more than 90% of the commercial flight routes in the country, which will allow passengers on those ships to access videos, music, TV broadcasts, video calls and VPN, from takeoff to landing.
In addition, Viasat also revealed that it hopes to expand its coverage in the same way in Europe and the Middle East through the Avanti Communication Group satellites. “This coverage expansion will enable us to extend connectivity for existing operators, pursue new business in these important regions, and further establish Viasat’s market presence globally“, Claudio D’Amico, Director of the Commercial Aviation Area of Viasat, said.
