Connected Aircraft eEnablement Conference

  The Marketplace for Aircraft Connectivity & Airline eEnablement

The launch of new High-Throughput Satellites (HTS) are rapidly changing the face of the aircraft connectivity marketplace with airlines moving from passenger centric IFE connectivity solutions to operationally driven IFC solutions. Total global revenues from connectivity services are estimated to rise from around $1 USD billion in 2016 to around $7 USD billion by 2022.


eEnablement and the Internet of Things (IoT) for aviation have the potential to analyse in detail hundreds of elements of an airline’s business operations. The results of this analysis can thus be used to extract efficiencies in a large number of aspects, and so deliver substantial savings. eEnablement can be described as a structured process as a means to build operational efficiency, capability and financial gain, via data creation, subscription, analysis, consolidation and value-added capabilities that extend across all airline departments.


Launched in London in October 2013, the Aircraft eEnablement Connectivity & IFE Conference was the world’s first event of its kind to cover airline eEnablement and complete nose-to-tail aircraft connectivity. Re-named for 2017, the Connected Aircraft eEnablement Conference 2017 will again be the perfect venue for the exchange of ideas for everything to do with Ground, Flight Deck and Cabin IFE Connectivity, Satcom, Big Data Analytics, Cybersecurity, Maintenance & Health Monitoring, IoT, Aircraft Tracking plus Airline eEnablement processes. The event will also provide exceptional networking opportunities for all attendees, and will help all airline departments to harness the operational benefits and revenue opportunities available with connected aircraft.
