Panasonic Avionics reports it has completed the latest phase in its investment in in-flight connectivity with the activation of extreme high throughput (XTS) satellite coverage over China and the Asia Pacific region. The beam over Asia Pacific from Apstar 6D, Panasonic Avionics' first XTS satellite, has gone live through teleports in Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Perth. This is expected to enable airlines based in the region and others flying over it to benefit from its enhanced satellite capacity.
