Viasat has 1,000 commercial aircraft flying with IFC

Viasat logoViasat has reached a major commercial aviation milestone by reaching 1,000 commercial aircraft flying globally with its in-flight connectivity (IFC) system.

Viasat installed more than 400 of its latest IFC equipment on commercial aircraft in 2018, with more than half of those installs occurring in the second half of the year.

It says these installations have helped it achieve new levels of service quality, cutting installation time to around three days, which it claims is significantly better than the industry standard.

John Daly, Vice President, Business Operations, Commercial Aviation, Viasat, said: “Viasat has made tremendous progress and important investments to meet the increased demand for our IFC equipment and service on global commercial aircraft.

“We continue to be hyper-focused on increasing the speed of installation, enabling our airline customers to get aircraft in service faster.

“In the fourth quarter of calendar year 2018 alone, we performed approximately 50 installs per month, and we expect that number to increase monthly as we drive further operational efficiencies into the installation process.”
