ANNAPOLIS, Md. (September 28, 2016) -The high speed cabin connectivity experience of the future is now one step closer for Zetta Jet customers with the delivery of the company’s first Bombardier Global 6000* aircraft enabled with Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX (JX). Rockwell Collins is the service provider and a value added reseller of JX connectivity as part of its ARINCDirectSM offering.
“Our passengers will be among the first in the world to experience the fastest and most reliable in-flight internet service available, which aligns with our goal of providing unparalleled luxury, performance and personalized service to our elite clientele,” said Geoffery Cassidy, managing director of Zetta Jet. “With ARINCDirect service, our customers can meet their business and entertainment needs by bringing their office into the sky, streaming videos and using social media to make their time onboard productive and enjoyable.”
“We are moving from basic satellite connectivity on aircraft to creating an airborne network,” said David Stanley, vice president, ARINCDirect Cabin Services for Rockwell Collins. Our team played a key role in the delivery of this service by architecting, configuring and troubleshooting the network so Zetta Jet’s passengers get the best experience possible.”
In addition to the cabin connectivity, Zetta Jet’s Global 6000* business jet is equipped with the Bombardier Vision* flight deck, powered by Rockwell Collins’ award-winning Pro Line Fusion®. The Global 6000* business jet also features Bombardier Business Aircraft’s latest cabin management system. A testimony to Bombardier’s dedication to provide the best customer experience, Bombardier took the highly capable Rockwell Collins VenueTM system and customized it with a unique interface for enhanced flexibility. Beyond the cabin connectivity services, Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect also provides flight planning and flight operations scheduling to Zetta Jet’s fleet of business aviation aircraft.
