Keeping a diverse fleet of business jets connected around the globe is not an easy task. To support its efforts Austrian aircraft management and charter operator Avcon Jet selected Satcom Direct (SD) to fill that role. SD now supplies all connectivity tools for the company, including voice and data services, flight deck communications and cybersecurity solutions.
As one of Europe’s major business aviation companies offering a wide range of services it is imperative that our provider can supply all our aircraft with the right connectivity services, seamlessly and securely. As technology moves so rapidly, we also needed to know we have immediate access to the necessary support and assistance for those services. The additional focus on cybersecurity and ability to customize services made SD the obvious choice for our needs.– Maximillian Maruna, Chief Operating Officer for Avcon Jet
