Asia Pacific airline to line-fit W-IFE to 737 MAX fleet


Rockwell Collins has been contracted by an as-yet unnamed “large Asia Pacific-based airline” to provide nose-to-tail connectivity services. The deal will see the CabinConnect wireless IFEC system, which uses Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) satellite network, line-fitted to its fleet of 100 new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

“The ability to stay connected while flying is critically important to airline passengers today, especially in the growing Asia Pac region,” said David Nieuwsma, senior vice president for information management services at Rockwell Collins. “These passengers want to stream video and chat with family, and also enjoy the benefit of flying with a highly efficient airline. That’s exactly what this solution provides.”
