Avianca and Inmarsat have announced the signing of an agreement that will allow travellers to enjoy broadband technology onboard its aircraft.
With this project, Avianca becomes the first airline in Latin America to make its aircraft available for the provision of GX Aviation, developed by Inmarsat to offer Wi-Fi to passengers and cabin crew during flights.
GX Aviation will initially be available to all Avianca passengers on approximately 125 Airbus A320, A330 and Boeing 787 aircraft, with the potential for additional aircraft to be provisioned at a later date. Avianca’s GX-equipped aircraft are currently expected to be rolled out starting at the end of this year.
Hernan Rincon, Chief Executive Officer of Avianca, said: “Today, technology is one of Avianca’s fundamental pillars. Therefore, and to allow our travellers to be always connected, we have signed an agreement that will enable us to continue advancing in our digital transformation with the support of Inmarsat.”
