A new-generation of in-flight connectivity services
Mbps delivery speeds per airliner
Eutelsat Air Access is designed to accelerate the deployment of in-flight connectivity for airline passengers in Europe.
Our new mobile service uses ViaSat SurfBeam® 2 technology and will be deployed on Eutelsat’s KA-SAT high throughput satellite.
Leveraging the high transmission speeds and bandwidth of KA-SAT, Air Access will allow aeronautical service providers to offer passengers top-quality Internet access, videostreaming and GSM services via tablets, smartphones and laptops. We also have the option to add further unique ViaSat networking features for management of high-speed service levels to passengers.
