A Qatar Airways Airbus A350, MSN42 currently in the FAL in Toulouse, has been equipped with Inmarsat Global Xpress inflight connectivity, the carrier’s GX integrator and value added reseller Thales confirms.
However, the airline is still deciding on a service provider.
Thales Inflyt Experience CEO Dominique Giannoni said, “We are on time in terms of installations; the first has been installed on the A350 frame and we are continuing our testing with Inmarsat and terminal unit provider Honeywell.”
Though Thales now has the infrastructure to support Qatar Airways as service provider for the program Giannoni revealed that a final decision has not yet been made by the airline.
