PODCAST: OneWeb, SpaceX and Telesat Talk Future of LEO Connectivity for Airlines


Aviation connectivity leadership from OneWeb Satellites, SpaceX and Telesat discuss future LEO development for airlines.

On this episode of the Connected Aircraft Podcast, we’re featuring a replay of the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite connectivity panel from our Connected Aviation Intelligence program.

The panel we’re featuring is the “The LEO Revolution is Underway in Satellite: What Does it Mean for Airlines?” with guest speakers, Manik Vinnakota, Director, Commercial and Product Development, Telesat, Ben Griffin, Vice President, Mobility, OneWeb Satellites, and Jonathan Hofeller, Vice President of Starlink Commercial Sales, SpaceX.

We have seen major announcements from SpaceX, Telesat, and OneWeb regarding their LEO constellations. The era of LEO is here and what does this mean for the airlines? Will they be looking at the LEO option much more seriously compared to traditional GEO satellites in the future? With a LEO revolution taking place in satellite, the panel examines how much of an impact these players could have in the IFC arena.
