Inmarsat has confirmed that International Airlines Group (IAG), the parent company of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, will be the launch customer for its European Aviation Network (EAN) high-speed in-flight broadband service. Under the terms of the contract, IAG plans to equip in excess of 300 aircraft with EAN and aims to have 90 percent of its short haul fleet complete by early 2019.
