With 125 installations in the past four months alone, Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX (JX) inflight wi-fi solution has now been activated on 400 business jets.
“The fact that 400 aircraft have been installed with Jet ConneX in under two years of commercial service introduction demonstrates the exceptionally high quality JX delivers to the business aviation market,” said Kai Tang, Inmarsat’s senior vice president of business and general aviation.
“Inmarsat and our partners have worked hard to exceed expectations and that is reflected in this accelerating demand from both manufacturers and business jet owners, many from Fortune 500 companies.”
Jet ConneX is a linefit option on various Gulfstream, Bombardier, Dassault and Embraer aircraft. In the retrofit market, more than 40 type certificate and STC approvals have been secured, including for all VVIP Boeing and Airbus models.
Using Inmarsat’s Ka-band satellite network, Jet ConneX offers data plans up to 15Mbps, delivering wi-fi that enables the business traveler to stream wherever and whenever.
Aircraft connect to the service using Honeywell’s JetWave hardware. More than 1,800 of these JetWave systems have been delivered by Honeywell.
