ViaSat Airborne Mobile Broadband Gets Into A Bombardier

ViaSat Inc (NASDAQ: VSAT) and Innotech Aviation, a newly appointed ViaSat airborne terminal reseller, have successfully completed the first implementation of ViaSatís high-speed broadband terminal on a Bombardier Global Express XRS aircraft.

Following the installation, the aircraft was commissioned into the ViaSat Yonder(sm) airborne broadband communication service by Satcom Direct. Yonder is the first service of its kind in the market, offering users the ability to send and receive broadband data, connect to a virtual private network, and access IPTV at connection speeds never seen before in a business jet at costs significantly lower than other less capable communication services. The installation of ViaSatís VMT-1500 airborne mobile broadband terminal was performed at Innotech Aviation facilities in Montreal.
