ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) has been selected by Bombardier Aerospace to provide airborne communications terminal equipment as part of a new high-speed Internet option on Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft.

"Aircraft equipped with this option will be able to use our Yonder® high-speed Internet service to enjoy a modern office environment anywhere in our coverage network," said Don Buchman, ViaSat director of mobile broadband. "Because of its high-speed connection and global coverage, Yonder service really is a one-of-a-kind offering. Now Global aircraft customers can gain access to it and make the most efficient use of their time onboard."

Yonder airborne broadband service provides Global aircraft passengers full Internet connections (Wi-Fi), Virtual Private Network (VPN), e-mail with attachments via laptops, voice-over IP (VoIP), and the use of other Wi-Fi devices. Yonder service provides typical download speeds to aircraft of 1 to 2 Megabits per second (Mbps) and upload from the aircraft speeds of more than 128 kilobits per second (kbps). The service is available through a ViaSat service reseller.

"Global business aircraft cabins are specifically designed to provide a highly productive working environment, a key factor in making these aircraft a leading choice for corporations worldwide. EMS Aviation and ViaSat have been leading the charge in the development of communication systems, using EMS high-speed routers and Yonder high-speed Internet service to provide the highest performance in-flight data service possible," said Stephane Leblanc, VP and general manager, Global Platform, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
