The South American branch of the international connectivity provider has grown from a team of one to eight, providing Satcom Direct products for air taxi services, business aviation owners and operators, and maritime clients in the region.

Ewerton Libanio (pictured front centre), MD, Satcom Direct Brazil, said: “We have spent the last ten years helping our customers navigate the complexities of connectivity by providing unwavering support, education about the technology, and powerful value-added services.” This includes technical training and cybersecurity solutions for clients.

Whilst Brazil hosts the largest number of customers for the connectivity provider, aircraft from Argentina, Chile, and Mexico are also flying with Satcom Direct technologies. “This region has such a mix of terrain, aircraft, and customer types that the potential for future growth is immense,” said Libanio.

Satcom Direct Brazil recently launched Yacht Connect, a marine connectivity solution connectivity for sports fishing and superyacht vessels. Libanio said, “with Yacht Connect, SD is providing a single resource enabling the principal to seamlessly transition from aircraft to boat while experiencing the same quality of internet performance.”
