A new world of passenger experience

Seamless high-speed broadband connectivity in the sky gives commercial aviation customers the opportunity to launch unique passenger experiences. GX for Aviation takes airlines beyond in-flight internet to streamed entertainment and dynamic e-commerce, targeted content and a personalised service.

Worldwide Wi-Fi, no drop-outs

GX for Aviation offers uninterrupted high-speed Wi-Fi worldwide – powered by Global Xpress, the world’s only global Ka-band satellite network owned and operated exclusively by Inmarsat. Global Xpress replaces the makeshift patchwork of Ku-band services that have not met the high standard of reliability for passengers and the aviation industry needs. Consistent performance, with no drop-outs between satellite beams, means broadband in the air works as well as it does on the ground.

Built for aviation

Unlike other solutions, GX for Aviation is a bespoke build that meets the needs of airlines and their passengers today – the result of Inmarsat’s unmatched experience as a connectivity service provider to more than 200 airlines worldwide.

Highly efficient Ka-band spot beams provide a robust layer of global coverage designed specifically to serve a mobile audience cruising at 35,000 feet. GX for Aviation’s steerable beams also offer the flexibility to add and redirect capacity precisely where it’s needed most, across the busiest hubs and traffic hotspots.

Future-proofed

As demand grows, so will our capacity. GX for Aviation offers upgradeable bandwidth to adapt to changing requirements and maximise capital investment. It’s part of Inmarsat’s commitment to continuous improvement in network performance, bandwidth economics and the services and applications that will set our customers apart from the competition.

With confirmed investment in future satellite launches, innovative new networks and advanced onboard terminals, this is technology you can rely on now, and in the future.
