Monday 30 April 2018 | 19:01 CET | News
Inmarsat's GX Aviation inflight broadband service is being rolled out on more than 130 of Qatar Airways' Boeing 777 and Airbus A350 aircraft. Qatar Airways is the first airline in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to offer GX Aviation. The rollout follows a highly successful inflight test campaign across the airlines' global flight routes. As part of the service offering, passengers will now be offered one-hour of free access to GX Aviation, after which full-flight access can be affordably purchased.
