OnAir Expands Global Xpress Ka-band Partnership to Business, General Aviation
Honeywell Aerospace signed an agreement to make OnAir the distributor of Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band aircraft connectivity services to the business and general aviation community.
The five-year agreement was signed at the 2012 NBAA conference.
OnAir said the Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-band connectivity will be available to business and general aircraft operators beginning in 2015.
“Today OnAir is the only connectivity supplier providing Global Xpress Ka-band to the entire aviation space, both the commercial and business sectors,” said Ian Dawkins, OnAir CEO. “This contract reflects a revolutionary trend that the passengers are demanding – to use their devices in the sky just as they do on the ground. It is essential to be at the forefront of providing the passengers and crew with what they need: in-flight connectivity.”
