GX Aviation enables high-speed global broadband in-flight connectivity services for passengers, and aircraft operations. Inmarsat will provide GX Aviation through its fleet of three wholly-owned and operated Ka-band satellites and ground network. The first of three Inmarsat-5 satellites was launched in December 2013 while the remaining two are set to be in place by the end of 2014.
