Eurowings to offer Inmarsat GX for Aviation service

Global mobile satellite communications provider Inmarsat has announced that Eurowings is the latest airline from the Lufthansa Group to select the company’s advanced new GX for Aviation in-flight broadband solution. GX for Aviation will initially be equipped on 69 Airbus A320 family aircraft from the Eurowings fleet, with the option to add additional aircraft. The first installations have already been completed by Lufthansa Technik and testing is scheduled to commence in the New Year. All aircraft covered in this agreement are expected to be fitted out by the middle of 2017. Inmarsat says Eurowings will be the first low-cost carrier to offer GX for Aviation, the world’s only in-flight connectivity solution with reliable, seamless high-speed global coverage provided through a single operator. The service allows passengers to browse the internet, stream videos, check social media and more, with connectivity on par with broadband on the ground.
