Thales has signed a memorandum of agreement that would include Thales as a partner in marketing Inmarsat's connectivity solutions to the commercial aviation market.

Under the agreement, SwiftBroadband and GX Aviation are the primary and preferred satellite services for Thales' industry-leading TopSeries IFEC system. Thales will work with Inmarsat and its value added resellers to deliver the full breadth of GSM and Internet services to airlines and their passengers.

In 2015, when GX Aviation enters service, airlines will have access to the only global Ka-band network.
