SKYTRAC announced that its satellite communications technologies will be leveraged by new Quebec-based airline OWG, which was introduced last week by Nolinor Aviation to focus on service to southern destinations, including the Caribbean.

In May 2020, Nolinor purchased three Boeing 737-400s to be leveraged by OWG, which have been integrated with SKYTRAC’s flagship satellite transceiver, the ISAT-200A. SKYTRAC explains this multifunctional system provides real-time two-way communications, accurate flight data monitoring and analysis, ultimately allowing OWG to track its fleet activity.

“Adding the SKYTRAC system to our new fleet of Boeing 737-400 was a no-brainer for the OWG division. Following our aircraft in real time is a must – the rest of the features are bonus points,” said Marco Prud’homme, president of OWG.

In addition to tracking and communications, SKYTRAC’s SATCOM connectivity system will also detect premature failures and immediately dispatch automatic alerts in real-time to ground crews.

“As a Canadian company, we are excited to see the launch of OWG, especially during such a difficult time within the aviation sector,” said Jan van der Heul, VP of sales, 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.”
