JAL to Introduce Intelsat’s Multi-Orbit In-flight Connectivity Service on Boeing 737-8 Aircraft

Japan Airlines (JAL) will introduce Intelsat’s multi-orbit in-flight connectivity service on Boeing 737-8 aircraft.

The installation will be done within Boeing’s factory, with delivery expected in 2026.

Using Intelsat’s new Electronic Scanning Array (ESA) antenna, the service will offer reliable multi-orbit service. The ESA, less than 7cm in height, is compact and provides wide coverage and low latency through connections to its own and its partner companies’ satellites. It marks the first occasion an airline outside the United States becomes a customer of this service.

Intelsat has been adopted by JAL since 2013. In 2017, it started offering free Wi-Fi service on domestic flights. The Boeing 737 and Boeing 767 models are equipped with the 2Ku connectivity service. J-Air is also scheduled to complete the introduction of the 2Ku service on 14 Embraer E190 aircraft within the coming months.
