Posted 4 January 2019 · Add Comment

Collins Aerospace – already a Value Added Reseller (VAR) for the commercial airline and government market segments globally – is to work directly with Inmarsat to offer Jet ConneX (JX) high-speed inflight Wi-Fi to business jet operators, enhancing its relationship with Inmarsat.



Through this new VAR arrangement, Collins Aerospace – which was created in 2018 by bringing together UTC Aerospace Systems and Rockwell Collins – will work with Inmarsat to improve the inflight experience for its JX customers.

JX not only provides customers with valuable and necessary onboard internet services, it also enables improved data transfer between the aircraft and operations teams on the ground. With better access to tools and data, the company can provide customers with more immediate and comprehensive support. The JX service is offered as part of Collins’ ARINCDirectSM solution.

“By directly offering Inmarsat’s JX high-speed internet services, combined with our connectivity experience and our proven support, we’ll be able to take our customer value proposition to the next level,” said David Poltorak, Vice President, Business and Government Aviation Services for Collins Aerospace.

“We have been a Level 1 distributor of Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband for many years. Now, as a Level 1 VAR of JX, we can continue working collaboratively with Inmarsat to provide our customers with top-line support and tools.”
World-leading solution

Philip Balaam, President of Inmarsat Aviation, said: “Since entering commercial service two years ago, Jet ConneX has quickly established itself as the world’s leading inflight Wi-Fi solution for business aviation.

“Collins Aerospace has been an important part of that journey and we are delighted to now expand our relationship. As a Level 1 VAR for Jet ConneX, they will work directly with us to build on the service’s success and enhance their customer offering through ARINCDirect.”

In addition to cabin connectivity services, ARINCDirect provides business aviation operators with tools to simplify the business of flight including flight planning, regional and international trip support and flight operations management.
