Inmarsat is planning to launch high-speed broadband services for air passengers across most of Europe.

British Airways is in discussions with Inmarsat on introducing the connectivity on its services.

Inmarsat’s new aviation network will deliver high speed broadband services to commercial and business aviation passengers.

Kate Thornton, head of product and service commented, “British Airways is in discussions with Inmarsat about leading Europe in a new era of broadband in the air. Starting with UK domestic routes Inmarsat intends to deploy Europe’s first ground-based 4G broadband network giving our customers the internet access they expect on the ground while in the air.”
