OWG, a new Canadian airline focusing on tropical destinations, selected Skytrac‘s satellite communications technologies to enable numerous capabilities onboard their fleet of upgraded Boeing 737-400 aircraft.

Onboard the fleet of Boeing aircraft is Skytrac’s flagship satellite transceiver, the ISAT-200A. The multifunctional system enables real-time two-way communications, flight data monitoring and analysis, and allows OWG to track their fleet activity globally from pole-to-pole. In addition to tracking and communications, Skytrac’s intelligent connectivity satcom system aims to also detect premature failures and dispatch automatic alerts in real-time to ground crews, ensuring the safety of passengers and reducing possible Aircraft on Ground (AOG) times for the aircraft.

“As a Canadian company, we are excited to see the launch of OWG, especially during such a difficult time within the aviation sector,” mentioned Jan van der Heul, vice president of sales at Skytrac. “The new airline will no doubt provide an economic boost within the region while also giving residents of Quebec a world-class flying experience above and beyond customer expectations. We’re excited to be a central piece onboard OWG’s fleet and look forward to continuing a positive relationship.”
