Join iDirect 25-27 October in Beijing for China Satellite 2017 where Sef Senhaji, Senior Director, Business Development Aero Market, will participate in a panel on 26 October at 9:50 a.m.: Operations Technology – Future Connected Benefits.
Mr. Senhaji will discuss the latest developments in the “connected aircraft” trend and how satellite solutions providers are helping airlines meet the challenges and maximize the benefits of in-flight connectivity (IFC).
With IFC a must-have these days for passengers, it heavily influences which airline people will choose to fly. Although passenger connectivity alone cannot justify the business case for bringing VSAT onboard, it does mean re-imagining the in-flight experience and operations from top to bottom. “Fully connected” now means cockpits with electronic flight bags to improve aircraft operations; it means increasing communication between the crew, cockpit and ground maintenance teams to allow for better predictive aircraft management and reduce repair delays; and, it also means equipping cabin crews with the latest mobile technology to improve customer care.
Today’s in-flight connectivity challenge is about meeting rising customer expectations while delivering a broad range of specialized applications. Join Mr. Senhaji at China Satellite 2017 as he discusses the latest developments in satellite communications that are helping airlines enable a truly connected aircraft.
