Airshare selects Viasat for Bombardier Challengers

Kansas-based fractional service provider Airshare has selected Viasat’s Ka-band onboard communications system for its new Bombardier Challenger 350 and future deliveries of the Challenger 3500. The first installation on an Airshare Challenger 350 was completed in July, with others to follow throughout the rest of the year.

Offering high-speed connectivity during all phases of the flight — taxi, takeoff and landing — Viasat’s service allows users to stream video and hold conferences, as well as access corporate VPNs from multiple devices simultaneously.

“Great connectivity is no longer just a nice in-flight amenity,” said Airshare President and CEO John Owen. “The Airshare service requires a reliable connectivity solution that provides high speed and constant connectivity from take-off to landing. Our owners want to stay productive, stream videos and stay up to date with what’s happening on the ground. Choosing Viasat for our new supply was an important step as Airshare enters its next phase of growth.”

Airshare’s fleet mainly consists of Embraer Phenom 100 and 300, but the company recently added super-medium size Applicants to expand its operations along the east coast.
