Bombardier Business Aircraft has received EASA certification for its KA-band in-flight Wi-Fi system. The company said this makes it the first original equipment manufacturer to deliver the new solution.
“We are dedicated to setting new standards in customer care and maximizing customers’ cabin experience,” says Jean-Christophe Gallagher, VPand general manager of customer experience. “Ka-band is the latest example of Bombardier bringing brand new technologies, something that you would have found only for installation in forward-fit aircraft in the past, back to its fleet.”
The system allows passengers to browse the internet, stream media or have videoconferences. It is offered as an option on new Global aircraft, or as an upgrade on all in-service Global aircraft models.
