The Global Connected Aircraft Summit is one of the first events of its kind to look at the angle of pure connectivity on an aircraft. This summit is a highly targeted event looking at the whole concept of a “connected aircraft”, not just in terms of the passenger experience, but also how it can improve business practices, potential revenues and operations. The program was created after extensive research with key airlines about the issues they face surrounding the connected aircraft, and what they would like to learn in establishing their next steps. This two-day event brings together panels on topics from airline business models and cockpit improvements, to satellite bandwidth and alternative industry perspectives.

“The Global Connected Aircraft Summit will provide an opportunity for the whole ecosystem — from airlines and satellite operators, to integrators and technology vendors — to get together to discuss their vision of the connected aircraft of the future. It promises to be a lively debate with a blue-chip list of speakers, which we believe is already second to none. This event will be key for anyone wishing to know how the connected aircraft market will develop,” says Mark Holmes, editorial director, Via Satellite and Avionics magazines.

This highly-anticipated event will take place at the Renaissance Hotel in Long Beach, California June 3-4.  In this two-day educational summit, expert panels will be speaking on topics such as:

  • Business models for the future
  • Future proofing the connected aircraft
  • Airline case studies
  • Cockpit and maintenance process improvements
  • Satellite bandwidth
  • The third party application/software market
  • Alternative industry perspectives

Both days will include keynote speakers across both satellite and aviation industries, multiple networking opportunities, and a chance to truly understand how connectivity is expanding beyond providing passengers with state-of-the-art entertainment to increase efficiency and offer cutting edge services.
