Gulfstream Aerospace Corp is celebrating a new milestone, surpassing 500 installations of Inmarsat’s Jet ConneX in-flight connectivity platform on its large-cabin aircraft. Our gold-standard business aviation solution is available on new Gulfstream aircraft and can be retrofitted on qualifying existing aircraft.
“Gulfstream owners expect a seamless transition from life on the ground to life on their aircraft, making connectivity essential,” said Mark Burns, President, Gulfstream. “This milestone illustrates our commitment to performance with high-speed connectivity and increased productivity, allowing our aircraft to truly be offices in the skies. As the industry leader in Jet ConneX installations, Gulfstream is dedicated to providing our customers with top-of-the-line products and services.”
Jet ConneX is powered by our award-winning global, mobile Ka-band satellite network, providing extensive coverage that supports video streaming, file sharing and more. Certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, it transmits at speeds of approximately 20 megabits per second.
Highest standard of global connectivity
Our fully funded and visionary technology roadmap will see seven more Global Xpress satellites launched by 2024 to deliver even greater capacity and capabilities to our Jet ConneX solution and extending our worldwide coverage to the Arctic region.
“We are delighted to celebrate the 500th installation of our Jet ConneX in-flight broadband solution on Gulfstream aircraft and proud of their continued trust in Inmarsat,” said Kai Tang, Head of Business and General Aviation, Inmarsat.
“This milestone is a testament to the Inmarsat ecosystem of partners and our joint commitment to delivering the highest standard of global connectivity to Gulfstream and their customers, for whom only the most reliable and consistent customer experience is acceptable. We look forward to building on this momentum and working side-by-side with Gulfstream on the next 500 installations and beyond.”
