Satcom1 becomes GX Aviation distribution partner

Aircraft satellite communications solutions provider Satcom1 will be a distributor of Inmarsat GX Aviation services to the business aviation market.

Satcom1 has signed an agreement with Honeywell Aerospace – the designated business aviation reseller for Inmarsat’s GX Aviation Ka-band services.

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the in-flight connectivity market,” said Miranda Mills, Inmarsat President, Aviation.

“GX will offer operators the first high-speed, globally available and reliable in-flight global connectivity service. The operational and cost benefits to aircraft operators will be significant.

“With its strong background in aeronautical satellite communications, Satcom1 is the ideal partner to promote the benefits of GX to business aviation operators around the globe.”

The GX Aviation network and hardware is scheduled to be commercially available in early 2015, providing high-speed broadband services with complete global coverage for all aircraft requirements – both in the cockpit and cabin.
