50 new Airbus A350, scheduled to enter service in 2024, will be the first Emirates aircraft powered by Inmarsat’s GX Aviation.

Emirates Airbus A350s will be equipped with satellite receivers supported by Inmarsat’s GX Aviation. In order to develop the global satellite network Inmarsat is putting into operation the most advanced commercial satellites this year. They will be followed by the launch of 3 additional satellites.

The GX network will ensure the world's only commercial mobile broadband service for aircraft flying at high altitudes and across the Arctic – for example, on routes between the Middle East and North America.

Adel al Redha, Emirates’ Chief Operating Officer, said:

“Delivering a world-class onboard experience has always been paramount to Emirates and we understand the importance of being connected during flights. Over the years, we have worked closely with Inmarsat and our supplier partners to ensure all our aircraft offer Wi-Fi connectivity. We look forward to finding ways and options to improve the connectivity on-board our aircraft by utilizing GX Aviation for our Airbus A350 fleet.”

Emirates, Thales and Inmarsat have invested significantly in a advanced Wi-Fi solution, and are working together to meet the growing demand for onboard internet service.

GX Aviation is the world’s first and only inflight broadband solution with reliable, seamless high-speed global coverage provided through a single operator.
