Banyan Air Service, a Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) operation, has joined forces with SmartSky Networks, an air-to-ground inflight connectivity provider. The partnership aims to provide private jet and turboprop aircraft owners with the fastest and most reliable connectivity system available today.

“We are proud to provide more services than any other aircraft support facility in Florida and are committed to offering our customers the latest and greatest enhancements to their aircraft. As a sales and installation partner for SmartSky, we have experienced the system for ourselves. We are pleased to say it delivers an impressive connectivity experience, as advertised, and we are excited to bring this game-changing product to our customers, especially streaming-level performance for smaller corporate jets,” said Danny Santiago, Director of Avionics for Banyan Air Service, in a June 27 press release.

SmartSky Networks announced the addition of Banyan Air Service as a sales and installation partner, expanding its network of authorized installers. Banyan, based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, is well-known for its FAA and EASA-approved repair station and its extensive repair station designations and approvals across more than 10 countries.

With this collaboration, Banyan will now offer installation and upgrade services for both the SmartSky Flagship system, catering to mid to large cabin jets, and the SmartSky LITE, designed specifically for smaller business aircraft. This move allows Banyan to provide a comprehensive range of connectivity solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of its clients.

Banyan Air Service has built a solid reputation for its 24-hour, full-service operations, serving various aviation sectors, including aircraft owners, charter operators, corporate flight departments, flight schools, and government agencies.

“Banyan is one of the most highly regarded aircraft service facilities in the country and is known for offering their customers world-class service as evidenced by their industry accolades year after year. This expertise makes Banyan the perfect fit to meet the growing demand for SmartSky’s industry-leading inflight connectivity performance,” said Aria Bahawdory Director of MRO Account Management for SmartSky in the same press release. “Customers in the business aviation marketplace are demanding best-in-class service, and SmartSky delivers.”
