Qatar Airways confirms intention to adopt Inmarsat's GX Aviation for inflight passenger connectivity

Posted 25 April 2017 · Add Comment

Inmarsat has said Qatar Airways has announced its intention to install Global Xpress (GX) Aviation across its flagship fleet.

Qatar Airways would be the first Middle Eastern airline to select GX Aviation’s inflight broadband solution and the company has stated that the service would initially be available to passengers onboard more than 130 of its aircraft.

GX technology has already been equipped on a line-fit basis on selected Qatar Airways Airbus A350s. Installations on the airline’s remaining Airbus A350s, together with the Boeing 777s, are planned to commence on a retrofit basis this Summer.

GX Aviation is the world’s first inflight connectivity solution with reliable, seamless high-speed global coverage provided through a single operator. GX Aviation gives airlines the freedom to provide unique passenger experiences that go beyond basic broadband to include streamed entertainment, advanced inflight shopping, and digital and personalised services that transform airline/passenger relationships.
