Preliminary details for September’s Connected Aircraft eEnablement Conference, being held near Heathrow, London, have now been released.
The event underlines the increasing interest in aircraft eEnablement and how it can help reduce costs for airlines. With more HTS Ku-band and Ka-band inflight connectivity systems coming online there is now more bandwidth than ever for eEnablement applications.
The organisers, “Aircraft Commerce”, say the conference will help airline departments understand the operational benefits and revenue opportunities available from connected aircraft.
The conference is covering all aspects of aircraft communications, connectivity and IFE (for the ground, cockpit and cabin).
Steve Bogie, Air Canada’s Senior Director of Aircraft Operations Information Systems, has agreed to be the Chairman of the event, which takes place at the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, London Heathrow, on the 13th and 14th of September 2017.
The conference will again be the perfect venue for the exchange of ideas for everything to do with ground, flight deck and cabin IFE connectivity, plus airline eEnablement strategies.
The event will also provide exceptional networking opportunities for all attendees.
It will include an hour-long airline connectivity panel discussion within the event agenda, which will be moderated by Craig Foster from Valour Consultancy – a leading in-flight connectivity consultancy firm.
So far, the following airlines have agreed to take part in the panel discussion:
- Air Canada, Steve Bogie, Senior Director of Aircraft Operations Information Systems
