Eclipse Global Connectivity, a leading engineering, design and aircraft modifications provider, and SkyFive, a specialist in broadband connectivity services, are collaborating to deliver a cutting-edge Air to Ground (A2G) connectivity solution to a prominent airline based in the Middle East.

SkyFive brings to the partnership its patented A2G technology, which leverages standard mobile network components to offer genuine broadband connectivity. This technology is tailored to meet the specific needs of airlines and aircraft operators across key aviation markets globally.

Eclipse Global Connectivity will play a crucial role in the project through its Design and Production (DOA / POA) division, Eclipse Technics. With more than 20 years of experience in aircraft modifications and having applied its A320 family A2G Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to more than 300 aircraft, Eclipse is providing the STC package and manufacturing the installation kits for this high-profile A2G connectivity project.

“We are proud to collaborate with Eclipse on this journey to provide this cutting-edge connectivity solution,” said Alois Sanktjohanser, VP Sales & Partner Management of SkyFive. “This partnership underscores our commitment to enhancing the passenger experience by offering true broadband connectivity aboard aircraft.”

“We believe that connectivity empowers aviation,” Marc Pineault, CEO of Eclipse Global Connectivity. “The latest trend in the airline market is their continuous discovery of new ways to strengthen passenger loyalty and achieving business goals with onboard broadband. “We are delighted to collaborate with SkyFive on this project. It is yet another validation of the extensive, and growing list of STCs and installation kits we provide.”
