SmartSky and Davinci expand partnership


Connectivity firm SmartSky has expanded its partnership with management company Davinci Jets, making the firm its new sales and installation partner.

Davinci Jets was the first management company to offer SmartSky to its customers. Since then, it has opened its MRO division Davinci Jet Services, which will now equip aircraft with SmartSky systems.

Models of Gulfstream, Bombardier, Exbraer, Textron and Pilatus jets are among those that Davinci Jets Services is now authorised to work on.

“Inflight connectivity is the most requested upgrade and now we can offer the most advanced system, SmartSky,” said Joe Chaundy, director, Davinci Jets Services. “As an MRO, we want a fast and easy installation that minimises the downtime for the aircraft. SmartSky delivers the speed our customers need in both connectivity performance and installation.”

Aria Bahawdory, director of MRO Account Management, SmartSky said: “We are proud to partner with Davinci in a bigger way. Because they are a leading provider of customised management, charter and MRO services, they are committed to offering the best available solutions for their customers.”

Bahawdory added: “SmartSky enables Davinci customers to get immediate access to the latest technology that will connect the cabin, cockpit and operations, all in a single installation, and benefit from future SmartSky technology advancements delivered via software updates.”
