BizjetMobile Discovers a New Course in Inflight Connectivity

The Problem

In 2010 BizjetMobile created the world’s first Bluetooth access point for inflight passenger communications in response to the rocketing costs of inflight connectivity on business jets.

Of the 15,000 business aircraft registered in the U.S alone, most owners and operators were trapped paying exceedingly high fees for inflight Wi-Fi.

What’s more, the majority of passengers just wanted to stay in touch with family and friends on the ground via text, and keep abreast of business communications via email – the two most important communicative tools in society then and now.

We knew there had to be a better way to serve these people.

For passengers that needed access to live Internet we had to cut their Wi-Fi charges significantly, and for passengers that needed simple connectivity we had to deliver an alternative platform that could support this for a fraction of the price of Wi-Fi.

The Solution

In 2012 BizjetMobile achieved something monumental. We had identified Bluetooth as an untapped yet viable platform upon which to deliver voice, text and email communications to passengers.

Bluetooth was like the little brother to Wi-Fi, but now the little brother had grown up taller, quicker and more intelligent. We were able to engineer a unique low-cost Bluetooth solution for business jets that used App technology to deliver the simple communication tools that a large slice of the market desired.

During this time we also developed App technology that would monitor and control live inflight Internet – allowing passengers to avoid high spending bills and aircraft operators to properly monetise their Wi-Fi offering. We incorporated the Bluetooth platform into this service therefore providing passengers with low-cost text and email too.

The two products, CHiiMP and KONNG, were flight-tested and then launched in 2014.

  1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for
    being off-topic but I had to ask! http://yahoo.org
