The Global Connected Aircraft Summit provides airlines, operators, integrators, and technology vendors complete connected solutions – from ground to air and from nose to tail. The second annual event connects business, technology, and industry perspectives and goes beyond just in-flight entertainment, to include operations, communications and technologies that impacts the aircraft.

The annual Global Connected Aircraft Summit brings together an audience focused on the aircraft of the future across the satellite and aviation industries. This educational event starts where the others stop – delivering more than average solutions and providing real-world examples and results that will positively impact your bottom line. Discover how connectivity is expanding beyond providing passengers with state-of-the-art entertainment to increase efficiency and offer cutting edge services.

This highly-anticipated event will take place at the Loews Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA June 6-8, 2016. This three-day educational summit will feature keynote speakers in both the satellite and aviation industries, multiple networking opportunities on and off site, and a chance to truly understand the concept of global connectivity beyond the passenger experience in order to increase efficiency and offer cutting edge services.

See what past attendees are saying:

“The Global Connected Aircraft Summit brought airlines, providers and their supplies together in a way unlike other same topic forums in that issues we each face were discussed in more depth. It was a deep dive into the issues of bandwidth, varied technologies, user experience, security, harnessing meaningful data, and business case development. There were networking opportunities to connect with companies that can add value to an Airlines’ Connected Aircraft Strategy and Airlines were given the opportunity to present their challenges so these companies can work on solutions. This Summit brought the airline’s problems together with the solution providers enabling step change to tackle the many challenges of connecting aircraft.”

Deborah Lee, Director, Product Management, Gogo (Spoke on behalf of United Airlines at GCA 2015)

“The Global Connected Aircraft summit is an outstanding forum that brings together Experts from Aircraft and Avionics manufacturing, Industry (Commercial, Military, Corporate and General Aviation) as well as the Regulators into one setting to discuss and drive the strategic vision of aircraft connectivity.”

Tim Leonard, Director Flight Operations, Southwest Airlines

“GCA 2015 major highlights were the discussion on the future of connectivity and how airlines can benefit by working closely with vendors. It has been a very fruitful conference with the participation of airlines, vendors and also aircraft manufacturers. What it gives me as an executive from the airlines is the ability to be able to have a close-up and constructive discussion with all the relevant parties instead of just visiting a booth and get information. There are plenty of opportunities especially to have an in depth understanding of any particular issue related to connectivity with any product or industry experts. Well done to the organizing team to enable the participants to have an interactive, productive and at times mind provoking sessions.”

Azman Ahmad, GM Products Management, Saudia

“Attending the Global Connected Aircraft Summit was very valuable to me and my airline because of the wide range of participants including other airlines, communication providers, content providers and other relevant vendors. The conference was well-organized with good speakers and interesting presentations. It was also valuable to hear about the experiences related to connectivity from other industries. It was a pleasure to be part of the airlines panel and to be able to share the concerns and issues we face to the dedicated developers.”

Ashi Hoseini, Manager Mobile Solutions/EFB Admin Flight Operations, Scandinavian Airlines


“I believe it was a great event. It seems like each and every participant took something back home as the next step direction. It was a mixture of presentations on various topics related to IFC which currently seems to be the future platform for many purposes such as operations and or supporting the airline with additional ancillary revenue and customer satisfaction.”

Amnon Hammer, Director of Engineering, El Al Airlines
