On this episode of the Global Connected Aircraft podcast, we spoke with Mark Cheyney, Virgin Atlantic’s head of in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) development, for a look at how the airline’s use of connectivity continues to evolve.

Cheyney explained Virgin’s perspective on business models for passenger access, how and why the airline uses multiple IFEC service providers, and how many in-flight internet sessions passengers have used on their new A350 this year through Inmarsat’s GX Aviation broadband solution.
