Eutelsat OneWeb, ACJ partner to offer satellite internet on VIP aircraft

Eutelsat OneWeb has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) to facilitate an unrivalled satellite connectivity experience onboard ACJs current and future fleet of VIP aircraft.

Under the agreement, ACJ Connect Link will utilise the high-speed, low latency, and global connectivity of Eutelsat OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation and a dedicated electronic flat antenna. This unique satellite connectivity solution onboard aims at improving the connected passenger experience. The passenger will be able to connect just as if in their home of office, with bandwidth and latency ten times faster than the current Ka/Ku solutions allowing multi devices high quality streaming, live TV and video conferencing.

The signature took place at NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas.

“Through this ground-breaking agreement, ACJ is ensuring that current and future discerning owners and passengers will experience unrivaled high-speed internet in the air, no matter where they are flying” commented Regis Broutee, VP ACJ Services & Customer Support Furthermore.

“The low latency and higher speed that is inherent in OneWeb’s latest generation Low Earth Orbit network, will facilitate a broad range of applications for passenger productivity and entertainment that to date have been out of reach while inflight.” added Jason Sperry, Head of Business Aviation at Eutelsat OneWeb.

ACJ Connect Link will be offerable on all Airbus Corporate Jets platforms in November 2024 and some operators have already shown interest in the solution to become early adopters.
