AirAsia Upgrades Inflight WiFi

AirAsia is upgrading its inflight WiFi service.

Six aircraft operated by AirAsia Malaysia (carrier code AK) and two aircraft operated by AirAsia Thailand (carrier code FD) have already been equipped with Inmarsat’s high-speed Ka-band platform, GX Aviation, which will be rolled out to the rest of the fleet over the next year.

Ka-band offers an enhanced inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) experience beyond basic broadband, supporting real-time video, music streaming and more.

To celebrate, AirAsia has been offering guests travelling on GX Aviation-equipped aircraft a free 10MB trial of the new service.

Inmarsat Aviation President Philip Balaam said, “AirAsia’s launch of GX Aviation services is a significant milestone, as it brings to life the airline’s bold and innovative new digital offering for passengers. We are confident that their upgrade from basic connectivity to the industry’s gold standard inflight broadband will be warmly embraced by passengers. Our teams continue to work closely together to install GX Aviation on the rest of AirAsia’s fleet of Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft, making it available to millions of new passengers each month.”
