September 9, 2020 – Inmarsat that its award-winning GX Aviation inflight broadband is now available on 100 aircraft with leading international airline Qatar Airways. The advanced connectivity service, which is being rolled out across Qatar Airways’ fleet of Boeing 777 and Airbus A350 aircraft, has become a popular addition to the airline’s premium five-star onboard experience, allowing passengers to seamlessly browse the internet, stream videos, check social media, and shop online during flights. Qatar Airways passengers receive one hour of free access to GX Aviation on equipped flights, with the ability to purchase full-flight access if more online time is needed. The service, marketed as ‘Super Wi-Fi’ by Qatar Airways, has been used by millions of the airline’s passengers since 2018, when it became GX Aviation’s launch customer in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The milestone of 100 aircraft has been achieved as Qatar Airways continues to play a leading role in the global aviation industry’s recovery from the impact of COVID-19. It became the largest international carrier between April and June this year, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and has now effectively rebuilt its network to over 85 destinations across six continents, with more than 650 weekly flights.
