The introduction of Skywaves®, under the pioneering new partnership, will unlock a wide range of capabilities that will enable airlines to provide passengers with seamless connectivity and digital services during flights.

Moreover, the partnership will offer SkyFly, a state-of-the-art end user portal that will enable a range of services for passengers at the touch of a button during flights such as movie streaming, online shopping, and other digital services with seamless user experience. SkyFly will be flexible enough to increase the bandwidth based on specific demands during the flight while providing high levels of service to different passenger groups, as and when required.
