Faster, lighter and easier to install, maintain and upgrade.
Delivered from the ground up, Thales’s Air to Ground (A2G) is the smart, swift and secure data option for passenger air travel.
Passengers want dependable in-flight connectivity, with the bandwidth to do more online while in the air and firmer assurances regarding stability, privacy and security. Meanwhile, airlines want to be equipped to provide travellers with all of the above, with comparable assurances regarding data-security, the logistics and costs of installation, upgrades and service reliability.
A2G is designed with all such things in mind – and plenty more besides.
Pushing the boundaries of aircraft connectivity
Satellite systems for passenger in-flight connectivity are typically expensive and cumbersome, in terms of the technology and equipment, as well as implementation, configuration, maintenance and updates.
A2G is not typical. It’s far lighter and less complex to install, maintain and upgrade. And that means it’s cheaper too, in terms of outlay and through-life costs.
With satellite based aviation broadband systems, passengers can experience quality issues in drop out and throughput issues. A2G’s superior area coverage provides a service that is comparable with the quality, speed and security we’re used to on the ground. This results in a solution that brings cost and peace of mind to airlines, as well as better passenger experience.
