In-Flight Connectivity

At Panasonic Avionics, we provide global, high-speed in-flight connectivity for commercial aviation that delivers the experience people are used to on the ground and expect when they fly.

Our connectivity services have been designed to improve efficiencies, empower your cabin experience teams, and create a world-class connectivity service that covers 99.8% of the flight routes used by the world’s airlines.

Introducing Our Multi-Orbit (LEO and GEO) Network

We are excited to have entered into a distribution agreement with OneWeb to offer and support OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) network for commercial aviation worldwide. The addition of LEO enhances our already industry-leading network and allows us to deliver a multi-orbit solution that is tailored to offer market-leading in-flight connectivity services.

100% Route Satellite and Regulatory Coverage

By offering both LEO and GEO networks, we can offer 100% route satellite and regulatory coverage so your aircraft can be connected wherever you fly.

Lower Latency. Increased Experience.

LEO is able to deliver lower latency speeds, giving passengers a more responsive connectivity experience for streaming, browsing, messaging, gaming, and cloud-based apps.

Support Sharing with Faster Uplink

With the growing trend of sharing and posting online, LEO’s return link speeds of up to 32 Mbps make it great for passengers to share, post, and send content in flight.

A Strong, Resilient Network

With hundreds of LEO satellites operating closer to Earth and access to the open GEO market, our network is equipped to easily meet the growing demands of passengers.

Increased Capacity

Easily meet the growing connectivity demands of your passengers with increased capacity of multiple terabytes per second and download speeds approaching 200 Mbps per aircraft.

Consistent Global Performance

Higher look angles of LEO and more satellites help to mitigate tail blockages and polar route look angle issues, all while providing a consistently high-capacity, low latency connection globally.

Improved Performance with Panasonic Hardware

Panasonic Avionics’ hardware not only powers our Wi-Fi connectivity services – it also works to enhance your passengers’ connectivity experience. Our Single Panel Antenna (SPA) is a fuselage-mounted Ku-band antenna that features a simplified design, improved performance, and delivers the bandwidth needed by passengers to have a world class connectivity experience, over the broadest geographical area. With a simplified mechanical design, the SPA design consumes less power and improves performance anywhere in the world. Moving forward, we are investing in electronically-steered antennas (ESA) for both LEO and GEO constellations.
