Staying connected whilst flying is becoming the new standard across the globe, and private jet travel is at the front of the advances
Private jets are incredibly popular amongst business travellers, and not just due to the speed and flexibility that they offer over commercial airlines. They allow you to carry on working throughout your entire journey - the cabin can be configured to resemble a flying boardroom and there are no other passengers that could listen to confidential conversations.

The internet era has led to a demand for being able to remain fully connected, even 40,000 feet above the ground. Increasing numbers of private jets are now wifi enabled, so you don't need to disconnect and lose productivity for the duration of your flight.
Wifi onboard an aircraft is provided through either a land-based or satellite antenna, so available bandwidths can vary depending on the system used and the flight route. Land-based internet systems can be less effective for transoceanic trips, so tend to be installed on smaller aircraft that do not routinely make these journeys. Likewise, satelline wifi is more commonly used on long range jets which fly further, and so provide their passengers with a more consistent connection throughout their entire flight. Regardless of which wifi system your private jet has, you can be safe in the knowledge you will still have access to your emails and web browsing, or hold video conferences with your colleagues on the ground whilst you travel - something that would never be a possibility on a commercial flight!
Wifi-enabled private jet requests are not limited to business flights, as some passengers simply want to be able to remain connected to friends and family, or have the option to stream films and TV programmes whilst they fly.
