First A350 installed with Aeromobile inflight connectivity

AeroMobile has announced the launch of it’s first connected Airbus A350 with Singapore Airlines.

Singapore Airlines’ inaugural long-haul flight for the newly-connected aircraft took place from Singapore to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Singapore Airlines’ customers were able to use their own mobile devices inflight just as they would on the ground. Further A350s entering the airline’s fleet will be fitted with the 3G inflight connectivity service.
Singapore Airlines already offers inflight mobile connectivity on selected A380s and Boeing 777-300ERs.

“We’re excited to be expanding our current connected fleet with our first ever A350. Asia is a key area of growth for us and we’re pleased Singapore Airlines continues to see the value of facilitating inflight connectivity for its customers,” said Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile.

Panasonic and China Telecom Satellite expand connectivity services over China to 1,000 additional aircraft

Panasonic Avionics (Panasonic) and its partner China Telecom Satellite (CTS) have announced a one-year extension of their Ku-band inflight connectivity trial. With this milestone, all approved Chinese and international airlines can now select Panasonic’s Global Communications Services and enjoy connectivity services worldwide.
Per terms of the license, over 20 foreign airlines with more than 1,000 aircraft are expected to begin operating connected flights over Chinese airspace, with more in process. In addition, Panasonic’s Chinese airline customers, including China Eastern Airlines, Xiamen Air, Hainan Airlines and China Southern Airlines have begun preparations to offer connectivity services across their global route structure.
David Bruner, Vice President, Global Communications Services, Panasonic Avionics, said: “We have worked closely with China Telecom Satellite for the past several years to support connected flights over China with our global broadband service.
“Today’s announcement is the next step in this special partnership, and we look forward to working with China Telecom Satellite over the months ahead to roll this service out across our approved international customer base.”
The announcement follows recent news that the leading Chinese carrier, China Eastern Airlines, in partnership with CTS, was the first to offer Wi-Fi on domestic flights. China Eastern Airlines installed Panasonic’s award-winning eXConnect inflight connectivity system on its newest Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
The service was initially offered by 12 foreign airlines with just over 200 aircraft offering inflight connectivity over this key region. There were also three Chinese-registered airlines and 30 aircraft offering connected flights in and out of China.
