Air New Zealand hits in-flight broadband milestone

Inmarsat’s GX Aviation solution has powered more than one million free in-flight Wi-Fi broadband sessions for Air New Zealand passengers in the space of a year.

GX Aviation is available on almost 25 aircraft within the Air New Zealand fleet, operating on Trans-Tasman, Pacific Island, US and London routes. This includes a combination of Boeing 777-200, 777-300 and 787-9 aircraft, as well as Airbus A320 and A321 neos.

“The fact that over one million sessions have been enjoyed by passengers since the free-of-charge model was introduced in December 2018 is testament to incredibly strong demand for high-speed, reliable and easy-to-access in-flight broadband,” said Chris Rogerson, Inmarsat Aviation’s Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific.
