ARINC Direct signs agreement with Honeywell to provide Inmarsat GX Aviation Ka-band Service
As the designated business aviation airtime reseller for Inmarsat’s GX Aviation global Ka-band solution, Honeywell has signed an agreement with ARINC Direct to bring this connectivity to the business aviation market. GX Aviation is scheduled to be available in early 2015 and will utilize Ka-band satellites both to provide much higher broadband speeds than existing services, and consistent global coverage. Faster speeds will give business jet operators, owners and passengers the ability to work and entertain, all while over bodies of water and around the world. High speed connectivity will no longer be confined to local, land-based access.
