AirAsia Berhad : Asia Digital Engineering completes its first installation of Inmarsat's GX Aviation inflight broadband solution

11/25/2021 | 01:20am EST

SEPANG, 25 November 2021 - Inmarsat, the world leader in global mobile satellite communications, today announced the first installation of its award-winning GX Aviation inflight broadband solution by Asia Digital Engineering (ADE), a wholly-owned AirAsia Group subsidiary and leading provider of engineering services in Southeast Asia.

The installation, completed onboard an AirAsia Airbus A320 aircraft, marks an important milestone in ADE's ambitions to become the preferred GX Aviation installation partner for all airlines in Southeast Asia, starting with the AirAsia Group. ADE aims to establish a one-stop shop for airlines that want to operate a fully connected fleet, combining its vast expertise in end-to-end engineering and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) with Inmarsat's market-leading connectivity solutions.

ADE was established in September 2020, after AirAsia Group consolidated its engineering and MRO assets to provide a centralised support service, not only for its own aircraft fleet, but also for other commercial airlines in the region. With a unique focus on data and technology, ADE has successfully leveraged, and continues to build on, AirAsia Group's 19 years of combined experience in operating and maintaining a large fleet of more than 250 Airbus A320 and A330 family aircraft.

Chris Rogerson, Inmarsat Aviation's Vice President of Global Sales, said: "AirAsia Group is the largest customer for our GX Aviation inflight broadband solution in the Asia Pacific region, and one of the largest in the world. Our partnership has been a hugely successful one, based on a common passion about the exciting opportunities that digitalisation and connectivity provide to passengers and the aviation industry, especially as airlines recover from the pandemic. We are delighted, therefore, to now collaborate on GX Aviation installations for AirAsia and other airlines in the region, bringing together the combined experience and expertise of Inmarsat, ADE and the rest of the AirAsia Group."

Mahesh Kumar, CEO of Asia Digital Engineering, said: "ADE has made significant progress since launching our services in the midst of the pandemic last year. We are delighted about the success of our first GX Aviation installation and look forward to continuing the rollout across AirAsia Group's fleet, as well as bringing our world-class engineering and MRO expertise to other airlines. By working with partners such as Inmarsat, we are building ADE into a market-leader that provides high quality and best value services, with a focus on using the latest technologies to increase productivity and efficiency."

ADE, based in AirAsia Group's RedQ global headquarters in Malaysia, has already received base maintenance approvals from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) and Indonesia's Directorate General of Civil Aviation, with approval from five additional authorities expected before the end of 2021 as it continues to expand the breadth of services ADE can offer for airlines across the region.
