Inmarsat brings in-flight Wi-Fi to Boeing jet customers

By

Inmarsat’s next-generation Jet ConneX inflight Wi-fi service is now available to Boeing business jet customers using the Lufthansa Technik two-in-one solution radome.

The TIOS radome connects to Jet ConneX using JetWave hardware produced by Inmarsat partner Honeywell, and was recently type-approved for Boeing Business Jet 3, based on the Boeing 737-900ER aircraft).

And, it has already been approved for Boeing Business Jets 1 and 2, which are based on Boeing’s 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft respectively.

Inmarsat says TIOS has been specifically developed by Lufthansa Technik to accommodate two antennas in one radome, using an “innovative” space-saving tail-mounted assembly that reduces drag and noise. The satellite says operators also benefit from reduced installation and operational costs.

Kurt Weidemeyer, Inmarsat’s vice-president of business and general aviation, says “Boeing VIP and corporate customers need a consistent, reliable and global high-speed Wi-Fi solution now.

“Lufthansa Technik’s TIOS installation is faster and customers are eligible for the same data plans as fuselage mounted antenna installations. It’s a win-win, allowing Inmarsat to offer our next-generation Jet ConneX service to an even wider market.”
