Thursday 29 June 2017 | 11:16 CET | News
Inmarsat has announced a contract to provide Colombia-based airline Avianca with its GX Aviation in-flight connectivity service. Under the terms of the deal, GX Aviation will initially be available to all Avianca passengers on around 125 Airbus A320, A330 and Boeing 787 aircraft, with the potential for additional aircraft to be provisioned at a later date. The GX-equipped aircraft are expected to be ready by the end of the year, said Inmarsat, adding that Avianca is the first Latin American airline group to adopt the satellite-based platform.
