Key Points
  • Thales selected as connectivity solutions partner for A320, A330 and A380 platforms.
  • Agreement enables Thales as lead supplier to become linefit offerable for Connectivity products and VAR services on all Airbus platforms today and in the future.
Thales has been selected by Airbus as Lead Supplier for HBC solutions to be deployed on A320, A330 and A380 aircrafts in linefit and retrofit mode.

Thales’ High Bandwidth Connectivity solutions will provide passengers the bandwidth they need to enrich their travel experience and airlines with the connectivity solution that satisfies their operational requirements.

This selection is an important milestone in the long- standing relationship between Airbus and Thales. In addition to the already selectable GX Connectivity solution for A350s, this agreement enables Thales to become linefit offerable for connectivity products and related VAR services on all legacy Airbus platforms, today and in the future.

HBC solutions are designed to operate standalone or connected to an IFE system.

Thales’ inflight entertainment and connectivity portfolio combines innovative technologies, a global support network, with a complete ecosystem that provides airlines valuable services to improve operational efficiencies and increase passenger engagement.

In this safety-critical and technology rich environment Thales has a pedigree and global presence no other provider can match, across aviation, avionics, satellite networks, connected skies, cyber security and passenger entertainment.

Being selected by Airbus as Lead Supplier for HBC solutions is an important milestone in our long-standing relationship. Airline customers can soon choose Thales’ Connectivity Solutions that best meet their requirements on all Airbus platforms. Dominique Giannoni, CEO, Thales InFlyt Experience.
