Exhibitor and sponsor information: Inmarsat







Inmarsat is the leading mobile satellite communications company. We have been providing connectivity and safety services to the aviation community for over 20 years. Today, our services are being used on more than 11,000 commercial aircraft, supporting applications ranging from passenger WiFi, GSM and TV content to critical safety and operational information for the flight crew.


Our existing satellite networks enable crucial safety services, including flight tracking, which are fundamental to safe and efficient operation of flights throughout the world.

In order to enhance customer and passenger experience, Inmarsat is in the process of launching a new fleet of satellites representing a $1.6 billion USD investment. With the first of three initial Global Xpress Ka-band satellites launched in December 2013, Inmarsat continues to lead the way in consistent, high-speed global coverage for the aviation community. The GX Aviation services are scheduled to be globally available in 2015, delivering the quality of service on which Inmarsat customers rely.


Inmarsat also confirmed its order for a new S-band satellite, to be called Europasat, and expects to complement this satellite with a fully integrated air-to-ground network across the EU. These capabilities will be offered alongside Inmarsat’s Global Xpress aviation services, extending Inmarsat’s service coverage for aviation passengers seamlessly across the rest of the globe, and placing Inmarsat in a leadership position in the global in-flight passenger connectivity market.  The satellite is expected to be delivered for launch at the end of 2016.
