Deutsche Telekom eyes EAN launch in first half of 2018 - Runway Girl | Watch Airlines news | Scoop.it
Deutsche Telekom assures that airline passengers “will be introduced” to European Aviation Network-powered inflight connectivity in the first half of the year, and that “every passenger will be served equally” with the wifi solution.

Providing an update this morning on the rollout of the hybrid air-to-ground/S-band satellite service, the German firm noted in an online press briefing that IAG-owned British Airways, which is serving as the launch customer for the EAN, is already “well underway” in installing the connectivity system on its aircraft. It also reminded viewers that a test aircraft has been flying with the EAN kit for months, and the system is “meeting its parameters”.

The integrated LTE ground network portion of EAN, which features 300 ground stations, is now complete. It is designed to meet the inflight connectivity needs of European operators for decades to come, as it is “fully scalable”, according to Deutsche Telekom, which is partnered with satellite operator Inmarsat and others on the EAN project.
