Gulf Air has selected Thales’ Ka-band connectivity solution for its B787-9 and A321Neo-E fleet.

 

Thales will deliver the highest performing connectivity service on the market, providing a complete end-to-end connectivity solution. Through the connectivity portal and onboard Wi-Fi network, passengers can browse the internet, check social media, shop onboard and much more during their flights.

Thales’ Ka-band connectivity solution leverages the INMARSAT Global Xpress satellite network. It is designed as a robust, modular and full-featured platform for a best-in-class onboard experience with reliable, seamless high-speed global coverage.

“We are proud to announce our partnership with Thales once again for the onboard connectivity project. Back in 2016 we selected AVANT IFE system for our yet-to-receive orders of new aircraft and today we complement this partnership with Thales for another product – all to elevate the customer experience during the flight,” said Krešimir Kučko, chief executive officer, Gulf Air
