The Boeing 777-200LR making its airshow debut here this week is to be fitted with AeroMobile mobile cellular technology later this year. The 777-200LR here is the second prototype and is being used primarily for interior certification. AeroMobile, the result of a partnership formed by Arinc and Telenor, is designed to leverage Inmarsat’s “classic” Aero-H, -H+ and -I satellite communications services currently available.

“Airlines using classic Inmarsat satcom equipment can offer cellular services to today’s passengers at minimal cost,” said Graham Lake, Arinc managing director Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “And they can upgrade the service as future advanced Inmarsat connectivity becomes available. AeroMobile is the lowest-cost, lowest-risk and highest-return solution available for in-flight mobile, and the only proven technology flying today that offers airlines an economical future-proof solution.”
