GX Aviation

Passenger service redefined

Consistent, reliable high-speed connectivity opens a new world of service innovation, giving airlines the freedom to deliver unique passenger experiences. GX Aviation takes airlines beyond basic broadband to streamed entertainment and advanced in-flight shopping, towards digital and personalised services that transform passenger relationships whenever, wherever, they fly.

Worldwide Wi-Fi, no drop-outs

GX Aviation offers uninterrupted high-speed connectivity worldwide – powered by Global Xpress (GX), the world’s first global Ka-band satellite network, owned and managed by a single operator, Inmarsat. GX Aviation gives passengers a seamless experience and airlines the confidence to launch new services driving commercial value.

Tailor-made for aviation

Unlike other solutions available, GX Aviation is uniquely engineered to meet the needs of airlines and their passengers today – the result of Inmarsat’s unrivalled experience as the trusted connectivity partner to more airlines worldwide than any other provider.

Highly efficient Ka-band spot beams provide a foundation layer of global coverage designed specifically to serve a high-speed mobile audience. But global coverage is only part of the story. GX offers the flexibility to add and redirect bandwidth where airlines need it most, across hub and traffic hotspots. And as demand inevitably grows, so will GX capacity, future-proofing airlines’ choice today.

Investing in the future

GX Aviation, powered by Global Xpress, is part of Inmarsat’s commitment to continuous improvement in network performance and customer services.

With confirmed investment in future satellite launches, innovative new hybrid networks and advanced onboard terminals, there’s a technology roadmap to rely on. And to put this technology to work for our customers we’re helping airlines worldwide develop the services and applications that will set them apart today and long into the future.
