flyExclusive and SmartSky Set a New Standard for Inflight Connectivity

The world-class, unmatched private jet charter installs SmartSky’s technology

Orlando FL, 18 October 2022 – Today, flyExclusive, the world’s second largest private jet fleet operator, is teaming up with SmartSky Networks, the innovative air-to-ground (ATG) inflight connectivity provider, to display SmartSky’s latest technology onboard a flyExclusive jet at this year’s NBAA-BACE Conference.

The NBAA display follows an initial successful installation of SmartSky hardware on Cessna Citation X series business jets at flyExclusive’s facilities in Kinston, North Carolina and sets a new bar for inflight connectivity performance.

flyExclusive and SmartSky will display the new offering at NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, where they will showcase their advanced ATG capabilities. flyExclusive’s core value of ‘Minutes Matter’ takes the initiative to be efficient, safe, cost-conscious, accurate, and customer-centered – promoting travel without disruption. SmartSky’s technology does just that, showcasing how its inflight connectivity saves passengers time, while also allowing them to have the ultimate passenger experience through real-time communications with people on the ground.

Speaking of their experience with SmartSky’s technology, Jim Segrave, Founder and CEO at flyExclusive, says: “At flyExclusive, we pride ourselves on delivering a premium experience every time out of the gate. SmartSky delivers dependable and secure connectivity that not only enhances the passenger experience, offering the ability to live stream and conduct high quality video calling, but also provides real-time data transfer to and from the aircraft. Our Cessna Citation X has successfully used the SmartSky system, and we’ve experienced the connectivity firsthand – it’s a fantastic product.”

Dave Helfgott, CEO of SmartSky, adds: “SmartSky and flyExclusive are companies that value innovation and delivering the very best for our customers. Our alignment in providing a consistent, uninterrupted service to customers speaks for itself. We look forward to showcasing our nationwide coverage, reliable
connectivity, and easy-to-install technology alongside flyExclusive at NBAA 2022.”

flyExclusive and Smartsky will be showcasing their services at NBAA at booth #3077, and at their static display (AD_405 and AD_305).
