New MTN debuts premium connectivity service


Priva by Global Eagle, a new satellite connectivity service designed to serve “VVIP” clients across their assets — on land at their private villa or island, at sea on their yacht, and in the air aboard their private jets — is set to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

“Global Eagle is advancing the heritage and quality of our maritime business and expanding our capabilities to allow ultra-high-net-worth individuals to benefit from the company’s extensive businesses in aviation and on land,” Jeffrey Leddy, Global Eagle CEO, said in a statement released by the company.

A 24/7 customer service program with technicians and support teams available at any time from Priva technical concierge centers in Miramar, Fla., and Madrid, Spain, began operating July 1. According to the company, each client is assigned a concierge account team to handle specific needs.

Priva replaces the former MTN brand. MTN began in 1980 and installed the first satellite links on board a yacht in 2003. It was acquired by EMC in 2015, and EMC was acquired by Global Eagle in 2016.
