SIA to boost its in-flight connectivity with Global Xpress Aviation system
BY the second half of next year, passengers on Singapore Airlines (SIA) flights will be able to enjoy high-speed in-flight connectivity service with data rates of up to 50Mbps.
The national carrier said on Monday that it has selected Global Xpress (GX) Aviation powered by Honeywell for the high-speed global in-flight Wi-Fi.
Honeywell Aerospace will provide its JetWave satellite communications hardware to Singapore Airlines for connection to Inmarsat's Global Xpress Aviation broadband solution, giving passengers greater flexibility and not have the frequent in-flight disruptions consumers currently experience on other available systems.
The installation of the first GX Aviation system is scheduled for the second half of 2016 and will be equipped on Singapore Airlines' B777-300ER aircraft, followed by its A380-800s.
