SITAONAIR has activated Inmarsat’s GX Aviation inflight connectivity on one of Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, making it Asia’s first GX-enabled commercial aircraft.

The company has equipped SIA with its full suite of high-speed connectivity-enabled services for the cabin.

These span everything from its custom-made high-speed inflight Wi-Fi hub (Internet ONAIR) and mobile data services (Mobile ONAIR), to digitised devices for cabin crew, to enhance the passenger experience and operational efficiencies.

The company says the upgrade of SIA’s SBB-enabled aircraft is the continuation of a journey started five years ago between Singapore Airlines and SITAONAIR, demonstrating how long-term partnerships help airlines derive the best value out of the connected aircraft for their passengers, crews and operations.

Yann Cabaret, VP Customer Programmes, SITAONAIR, said: “Our Singapore Airlines’ aircraft upgrade programme has been an extremely challenging project.

“It required our long-lasting expertise in the management of complex industrial consortia, operating in constrained environments, to deliver the project on time, and synchronised with the planned grounding period for the aircraft.

“I would like to commend our strong working partnership with SIA, as well as with key partners such as Aeroconseil, Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, Honeywell, Inmarsat, KID-Systeme GmbH, SIA Engineering Company, and Zodiac Inflight Innovations, for helping make SIA’s end-to-end integrated solution a reality.”
