Aircell is the world's leading provider of airborne communications. Until recently, time spent in the cabin of a business jet meant that you were disconnected from the world circling below. That’s all changed. Airborne technology has finally caught up with the rest of the world. Simply put, voice, data and even the entire Internet can be at your disposal during flight–in the cockpit and in the cabin. Now you can use that time to return calls, answer email, download files or simply conduct a little firsthand Internet research. Using Wi-Fi or wired connections. In the U.S. or around the world.
