Bringing fibre-like connectivity to the skies
With performance comparable to terrestrial broadband services, offering speeds to up to 195Mbps and latency of less than 50ms, our fibre-like experience will transform airline connectivity now and for the future. We’ll empower airlines to offer passengers an in-flight connectivity experience that is limited only by their imagination – not bandwidth. Thanks to OneWeb, airlines will finally be positioned to deliver a fully connected customer journey, while digitising added value services and solutions.
Our Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation will deliver an inflight Wi-Fi experience that airline passengers can truly connect with. With truly global coverage including the polar regions and a uniform experience, passengers will be able to connect with ease, with confidence and with real purpose – anytime and everywhere. By delivering low latency combined with high speed and consistent throughput, OneWeb will enable passengers to connect like never before enjoying seamless and uninterrupted online gaming, video conferencing, live sport watching and cloud computing.
Cabin Crew Connectivity
While passengers are enjoying the freedom to interact with their chosen content as they would at home, cabin crew will be able to access IoT solutions that will drive the customer experience to new levels of personalisation and sophistication. Cabin crew will be able to interact real time with frequent flyer offerings, concierge services and even telemedicine helplines. What’s more, OneWeb’s low latency, high speed connectivity will facilitate and accelerate airline digitisation programmes – giving airlines complete control over and visibility of the passenger journey.
Flight Crew Connectivity
On the flight deck, OneWeb can help airlines maximise inflight efficiency. With no-lag and uniform connectivity experience flight crews will be able to access, with confidence, real-time graphical weather and flight planning applications via their EFB. Flight crew will be able to optimise their flight plans en-route, reducing fuel burn, minimising weather-related delays and maximising on-time performance.
OneWeb is finally delivering on the promise of a truly connected aircraft. By facilitating the affordable transfer of aircraft data direct to an airlines ground maintenance infrastructure, OneWeb will help airlines transform their operations. Our connectivity solutions will reduce aircraft maintenance downtime through the activation of data driven analytics including; real-time in-flight maintenance tracking and notifications, real-time in-flight telemetry from components to hangar, video and image downloads of faults from the air and predictive analysis of maintenance data.
