Fla. charter service offering satellite TV

Posted on May 24, 2012

Tallahassee, Fla.-based Astro Travel & Tours Inc. is now offering all of its passengers access to more than 200 channels of current DIRECTV programming through a new contract with DIRECTV Auto, operated by FMG Lifestyle.

"Astro customers have come to expect excellent services and cabin amenities when traveling with us," said Matt Brown, GM, Astro Travel & Tours. "Having the ability to offer in-motion satellite television fleet-wide is just one more way we're listening to our customers and catering to their needs and lifestyles."

Astro Travel & Tours provides chartered services throughout its geographic market — spanning northern Florida and southern Georgia — and anywhere else in the continental U.S. Much of the company's business caters primarily to sports teams and school groups in the area, but also serves a variety of businesses, organizations and religious groups.
