Emirates collaborates with Thales to provide next-generation Wi-Fi connectivity


Nov 16 2017

Emirates and Thales have inked a new agreement to equip its Boeing 777X fleet with the next generation broadband in-flight connectivity using Inmarsat GX global network. The partnership will give Emirates customers best in class connectivity on its Boeing 777X aircraft due for delivery starting in 2020.

Emirates and Thales already have an existing multi-million dollar deal to fit its Boeing 777X fleet with a next-generation Thales AVANT in-flight entertainment system. The new agreement is part of the Emirates and Thales’ plans to develop and enhance the state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) on the 777X fleet.

Emirates, Thales and Inmarsat have invested heavily in the new generation Wi-Fi solution and will work together to meet increasing demand for Wi-Fi on board. Broadband connectivity speeds coupled with Thales’ AVANT customisable IFE system will provide a further boost to Emirates’ in-flight entertainment system, ice.
