Air Astana has completed the installation of Rockwell Collins’ cabin system, which supports Inmarsat’s GX Aviation in-flight connectivity (IFC) service, across its fleet of three Boeing 767 aircraft, operating on domestic routes and high-density, long-haul routes out of Almaty and Astana in Kazakhstan.
The IFC service is available to both business- and economy-class passengers, who can choose from three connectivity packages. The airline’s Light option covers 15 MB; the Regular option covers 50 MB; and the Super option offers 100 MB. All services are estimated to operate at an average speed of 2 to 5 Mbps.
In September 2017, Air Astana became the first airline in the world to offer Inmarsat’s GX Aviation on-board a widebody aircraft when the installation on its first Boeing 767 was completed.
