KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 (Bernama) -- AirAsia Bhd, through its subsidiary ROKKI Sdn Bhd, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Inmarsat Plc for the latter's next-generation GX Aviation inflight connectivity solution.

London-based Inmarsat Plc is a leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, and it currently provides its SwiftBroadband service to AirAsia.

In a statement today, AirAsia said the agreement covered the group's Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft, and the installation was expected to commence this year, with the service to go live in 2018.

AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said with the upgraded inflight broadband service, the airline's customers would be able to enjoy extra fast Internet connectivity.

"They will also be able to enjoy free movies, music, articles and games on ROKKI inflight entertainment and connectivity platform," he said.

Inmarsat Aviation President Leo Mondale said GX Aviation's global and consistent performance provided AirAsia with the commercial flexibility needed to quickly deploy the service on routes across Asia, the Middle East and Australia.
