With a mean average of four days per aircraft, we are your partner for integrating high-speed connectivity technology quickly into fleets of any size.
We provide fast integration, regardless of whether you want to equip a big fleet or a single aircraft with the latest on-board connectivity systems.

Expertise and experience
Profit from our know-how
What makes us the perfect partner for connectivity solutions and MRO services? First and foremost, our vast experience and strong business relations in the aviation industry. More than 800 international customers rely on our expertise. Our customer base includes regional start-ups, small and mid-sized carriers, legacy airlines and numerous private and government aircraft. We know from experience that "one size fits all" does not apply here.
Our experience helped us play a pioneering role in installing the current FlyNet® portal on Lufthansa's long-haul fleet. Our Aircraft Modification unit is currently the partner of choice when it comes to bringing connectivity on board of narrowbody aircraft. Partnered with Lufthansa Systems and its BordConnect system, we are optimally positioned to meet the increasing demand for wireless Internet connections on short- and medium-haul flights.
We have been equipping aircraft with connectivity solutions since 2003. Lufthansa was the first airline to provide Wi-Fi on long-haul flights and still maintains the largest international long-haul fleet with Internet access today. And as broadband Internet learned to fly with us, we gained experience with various systems and are proud to be the first choice for installing satellite communication technology.
In the space of just two years, we equipped Lufthansa's entire fleet of 80 long-range aircraft with a cutting-edge cabin design that included an all-new in-flight entertainment system. Lufthansa is thus the first airline in the world to have a long-haul fleet with broadband technology.
The installation program for broadband technology in the continental fleets of Lufthansa, Eurowings and Austrian Airlines is the first of its kind. The new service is based on state-of-the-art broadband satellite technology and offers seamless, reliable coverage.

Future opportunities for your connected fleet
The potential benefits that connected aircraft generate for your business are boundless and highly valuable.
