Connectivity Takes Center Stage with Aircell at EBACE 2010

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (EBACE 2010) – May 3, 2010 – Aircell, the world’s leading provider of airborne communications, is carrying a strong message of connectivity to Europe’s largest business aviation event, being held in Geneva this week.

“We’re at the show to say that if aircraft operators want to get productive, they need to get connected,” said John Wade, Aircell’s Executive Vice President & General Manager. “Most operators still don’t realize it’s now possible to equip virtually any business aircraft with e-mail and Internet capabilities for laptops and smartphones. Getting a business aircraft online does wonders for productivity because people can work and stay in touch while they travel – they never miss a beat.”

Jean-Luc Rosenfeld, Aircell’s European Sales Manager, explains that older communications equipment can have significant value to operators looking to upgrade. “Many people aren’t aware that many older antennas are compatible with new equipment, which can simplify installation and certification requirements. And in other cases, high-speed data capabilities can be added right alongside existing systems. There are lots of opportunities to be efficient, and operators – particularly those with Aircell Axxess®, Swift64 or Aero M/Aero I systems – are smart to take note of what they have installed and come talk to us.”

For operators attending EBACE in search of ways to increase productivity and get more out of their business aircraft, Aircell is providing a number of opportunities in Geneva this week.

Because Aircell products are offered by every major OEM in business aviation, the majority of factory business aircraft in the EBACE static display this week will have Aircell equipment installed – and even operating in some cases. This gives attendees a unique opportunity to inspect and experience a variety of Aircell connectivity systems first-hand.

On Aircell’s Stand 390 at Geneva Palexpo, attendees can get up to speed in just a few minutes and go home with the knowledge they need to make smart decisions. They can see the newest onboard equipment, speak directly to airborne connectivity experts and find a local installation facility.

Aircell offers all of the major airborne network services and will be highlighting the following range of connectivity systems at the show:
