Satcom Direct (SD), the aviation connectivity
solutions provider, has signed an exclusive agreement with TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd
to incorporate new connectivity services and technology across its UK fleet.
The deal will build on the existing business
relationship which has seen the two Farnborough UK-based companies collaborate
to provide TAG Aviation customers with a reliable connectivity service for the
last eleven years.
Under the terms of the new agreement, SD will
extend its latest technologies for in-flight connectivity. These include voice
and data solutions which will ensure TAG’s fleet stays connected at all the
phases of flight, wherever the aircraft are operating around the world.
“TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd prides itself on
providing the highest quality services to our clients and part of this service
necessitates a robust connectivity system that enables the cockpit and cabin to
stay connected. Passengers expect a full range of communication options and SD
gives us that, which in turn gives us the confidence to support our clients’
needs. It also helps us manage our business effectively, which in turn adds
value to our client offering,” said
Greg Hoggett, Chief Operating Officer,
TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd.
|Once the integration of the new services is
complete, TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd’s passengers and crew will have access to
enhanced flight deck and cabin connectivity, communications, information and
entertainment when travelling which will be provided through SD’s portfolio of
software, hardware and support services.
“For operators, consistent and dependable
connectivity is essential in winning and retaining clients. To support this
expectation, we have created a suite of services that provides the operator with
nose to tail connectivity to enhance their operations across the board. With
this new agreement, we will continue to provide services to support TAG Aviation
(UK) Ltd’s business, helping to ensure they can meet their clients’ needs, and
their business goals,” adds Michael
