17 Aug 2017 - MAX to offer production line installed Wi-Fi

The 737 MAX now has an optional production line fitted Wi-Fi system. The system is Global Eagle’s Airconnect 3.0. The equipment is the first catalog-offerable linefit connectivity system available for installation during assembly of the 737 MAX.

Providing internet connectivity to airlines largely has been an industry retrofit business, which forces an airline to take an airplane out of service for the connectivity additions, increasing costs and lowering revenue. Global Eagle’s linefit Airconnect 3.0 changes that cost equation. “Being the first Wi-Fi connectivity solution to be linefit on the 737 MAX benefits airlines and passengers,” said Per Norén, Global Eagle Senior Vice President, Aviation.  “Not only does it provide substantial time- and cost-saving benefits to airlines, it also allows them to quickly offer passengers the most complete travel experience with the latest technology.”

Global Eagle’s Airconnect 3.0 system currently flies on 865 airplanes around the world, including airlines receiving best inflight experience awards. The system has also been recognized as the "world's best inflight connectivity" three years in a row by the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX).
