Panasonic Avionics, fresh off a big GEO-satellite in-flight connectivity expansion, now (almost) only has eyes for LEO

by Peter B. de Selding

LA PLATA, Maryland — Panasonic Avionics has about completed a major expansion of its in-flight-connectivity capacity on multiple geo-orbit satellites over the Americas, the Atlantic air corridors, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Ocean.

The company, which provides in-flight Wi-Fi to about 2,500 commercial aircraft, has not disclosed details of its new capacity, only that it represents a 50% increase and speeds of up to 75 Mbps per plane via high-throughput satellites and 200 Mbps using the XTS satellites.
