Inmarsat, a leader in global mobile satellite communications, has announced the first installation of its GX Aviation inflight broadband solution by Asia Digital Engineering (ADE).
The installation, completed onboard an AirAsia Airbus A320 aircraft, marks an important milestone that supports ADE’s ambitions to become a GX Aviation installation partner for other airlines in Southeast Asia.
The company, a wholly-owned AirAsia Group subsidiary based in Malaysia, will also establish a one-stop shop for airlines that want to operate a fully connected fleet, combining its expertise in end-to-end engineering and maintenance, repair and overhaul with Inmarsat’s connectivity solutions.
With a focus on data and technology, ADE has successfully leveraged, and continues to build on, AirAsia Group’s 19 years of combined experience in operating and maintaining a large fleet of aircraft.
Chris Rogerson, Inmarsat Aviation’s Vice President of Global Sales, said: “AirAsia Group is the largest customer for our GX Aviation inflight broadband solution in the Asia Pacific region, and one of the largest in the world.
“We are delighted, therefore, to now collaborate on GX Aviation installations for AirAsia and other airlines in the region, bringing together the combined experience and expertise of Inmarsat, ADE and the rest of the AirAsia Group.”Click below to share this article
