Connectivity

Connectivity

Connecting to the digital world anywhere

In the aerospace industry, connectivity means faster access to critical information, leading to better decision-making and outcomes. At Airbus, we work to better connect our passengers and aircraft to the digital world, whether on the ground, in the air or anywhere around the world.

Building faster access to critical information

Airbus builds comprehensive future technology capabilities to deliver uninterrupted connectivity that is interoperable between aircraft, helicopters, drones, future electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOLs) vehicles, satellites, command centres and mobile units deployed on the ground or at sea. Our objective is to offer seamless in-flight connectivity that is comparable to mobile phone connectivity available on the ground—even when switching from one network to another, from 4G to Wi-Fi, or from country to country—without compromising the aviation industry's high standards in reliability and cybersecurity. In doing so, we can enhance the in-flight passenger experience through ubiquitous "always on" connectivity.
