It has been announced that Panasonic Avionics achieved a major milestone in December last year with the connection of broadband services equipment to its 1000th aircraft – a Boeing 777-300.
In-flight aircraft broadband is increasing in demand for both commercial and business aviation passengers, as the latest technological advancements dictate. Panasonic Avionics serves around 3,000 aircraft to date to the global connectivity service, a number which they expect to rise to 15,000 by 2025.
Other providers of aircraft broadband connectivity are also experiencing a surge in demand, and the industry as a whole expects that demand to continue. Next generation cabin connectivity offers mobile support with enhanced bandwidth, benefitting both passengers and cabin crew.
