Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has partnered with Eutelsat OneWeb to enhance the onboard connectivity experience for its customers through ACJ Connect Link. This collaboration involves leveraging OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation and a specialized electronic flat antenna. The companies signed the official agreement during the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) held in Las Vegas.
“Through this ground-breaking agreement, ACJ is ensuring that current and future discerning owners and passengers will experience unrivaled high-speed internet in the air, no matter where they are flying” commented Regis Broutee, VP ACJ Services & Customer Support
Furthermore, “The low latency and higher speed that is inherent in OneWeb’s latest generation Low Earth Orbit network, will facilitate a broad range of applications for passenger productivity and entertainment that to date have been out of reach while inflight.” added Jason Sperry, Head of Business Aviation at Eutelsat OneWeb.
Introducing a state-of-the-art satellite connectivity solution designed to enhance the experience of connected passengers. This innovative solution offers a significant improvement in terms of bandwidth and latency, providing passengers with a home-like experience on-board. With speeds ten times faster than existing Ka/Ku solutions, passengers can enjoy seamless streaming on multiple devices, access live TV, and even engage in video conferencing.
Additionally, the new flat antenna design not only enhances connectivity but also contributes to reducing drag. The ACJ Connect Link solution will be available on all Airbus Corporate Jets platforms starting in November, and it has already generated interest from potential early adopters.
