Wymondham, Norfolk, United Kingdom, 2014/03/18 - The GetConnected.aero website and e-newsletter has been launched to focus on the growing inflight connectivity market. Inflight telephony and internet access is fast becoming a "must have" for airlines and business aviation.
GetConnected.aero has been launched to focus on the rapidly-growing inflight connectivity market.
With more airlines and bizjet owners fitting connectivity, and with new Ku- and Ka-band satellite solutions coming online over the next two years, there has never been a more exciting time for the industry.
Get Connected contains the latest news from the world of inflight connectivity, plus features on the major players, suppliers and airlines using Inmarsat, Panasonic, Gogo, Global Eagle, and other services.
The site will also look at news from satellite providers like Intelsat, Inmarsat, SES and Viasat, plus connectivity providers like OnAir, Aeromobile, ARINC, Satcom 1 and Satcom Direct.
There will be features that help to demystify the technology, plus visitors to the site can also narrow down what they wish to read about by using the site's “tag cloud”.
Access to Get Connected is completely free as it is supported by advertising, plus visitors can subscribe to a free e-newsletter with a monthly round-up of all the latest inflight connectivity news.
Get Connected is produced by Steve Nichols of InfoTech Communications, a well-known journalist in inflight connectivity circles, who writes for Arabian Aerospace, African Aerospace, ADS Advance, and BART International magazines among others.
Steve said: “This is a very exciting time for the inflight internet, TV and telephony industry, with Viasat and Inmarsat's Ka-band services, plus new spot-beam Ku-band satellite launches on the horizon.
“Plus there is already plenty going on with existing L-band and Ku-band services and Gogo's air-to-ground and hybrid solutions. Get Connected aims to be a one-stop shop for news from the industry.”
