Qatar Airways Launches Improved IFE and High-Speed Broadband
Qatar Airways has made several enhancements to its onboard products including the launch of its new high-speed broadband in partnership with Inmarsat (GX Aviation).
This offering heralds a new chapter in connectivity for the airline, enabling both premium and economy passengers the ability to stream content and browse the internet with the same ground speed and efficiency.
Initially available on the Boeing 777 and Airbus 350, Inmarsat’s ‘GX Aviation’ product will offer seamless connectivity through its proprietary Global Xpress Ka-band satellite network.
The airline's enhancements and improved connectivity will be complemented by the airline’s relaunched superior entertainment system, Oryx One, offering a next-generation user interface that has been redesigned.
Also launched is the brand-new 'Oryx One' mobile app which showcases the very best of Qatar Airways’ entertainment, allowing passengers to browse the vast entertainment content library on their own device.
Passengers can enjoy trailers of the latest Hollywood blockbuster releases and plan their on-board viewing before leaving the ground and even read a selection of magazines and newspapers whilst waiting to board.
These extensive and ground-breaking enhancements come as the airline celebrates its 20th year of operations marking two decades of growth, industry leadership and innovation.
