Lufthansa's A380 to offer full connectivity

Written by  Mary-Anne Baldwin Monday, 07 April 2014 11:12

Lufthansa has taken delivery of an A380 line-fitted with broadband in-flight connectivity service from Panasonic Avionics Corporation.

Over the next twelve months, Panasonic will equip an additional 11 line-fit A380s with its global connectivity service.

David Bruner, VP of Global Communications Service at Panasonic, says: "For the first time, A380 passengers will be able to experience truly global, full broadband connectivity that's only available from our Ku-band Global Communications Service.

"Our unique service lets passengers browse the Internet, access their VPN, and send email at high speeds, giving them a service similar to what they would expect on the ground."

The inflight connectivity covers over 99.6 per cent of commercial flights, meaning almost total high-speed connectivity.
