Bombardier secures fastest global cabin connectivity

Bombardier has become the first OEM to supply Ka-band high-speed internet system, the industry’s fastest in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity worldwide available today, following certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for retrofit on all Bombardier Global aircraft models.

The Ka-band high-speed internet system lets passengers on board Global aircraft browse the internet, stream online media or stage a videoconference as quickly and as effortlessly as they would in their home or office.

Bombardier’s Ka-band is offered as an option on new Global aircraft or as an upgrade on all in-service Global aircraft models at the company’s extensive network of service centres.

“We are dedicated to setting new standards in customer care and maximising customers’ cabin experience,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, customer experience. “Ka-band is the latest example of Bombardier bringing brand new technologies, something that you would have found only for installation in forward-fit aircraft in the past, back to its fleet.”
