  • 3 min read

Thales will develop and build a Complementary Ground Component (CGC) terminal for Inmarsat’s new European Aviation Network (EAN) high-speed inflight connectivity (IFC) solution.

Inmarsat first announced its interest in building a hybrid network in Europe which would capitalise on both satellite and cellular tower infrastructure to make high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi connections more readily available in the European skies back in 2014, announcing a projected launch date for the end of 2016.
