SkyFive Takes Flight with Air-to-Ground at AIX 2023

June 05, 2023

Hamburg, June 6th, 2023: SkyFive, a provider of broadband services to the aviation industry based on Air-to-Ground (A2G) technology, is unveiling a number of innovations at Aircraft Interiors EXPO 2023:


World's smallest terminal for broadband inflight connectivity on display

SkyFive, in collaboration with Sequans, has developed a postage stamp-sized Air-to-Ground (A2G) module that can be easily integrated into airborne devices, representing a significant milestone in miniaturizing the technology and simplifying aircraft installation. The first device to utilize this new technology is Flightcell's DZMx. Both the new A2G module and DZMx can be viewed at the SkyFive booth.


Passenger Connectivity Factor determined on the spot

Within minutes, SkyFive can accurately simulate the flight paths of an entire airline schedule and calculate the Passenger Connectivity Factor (PCF). PCF is the equivalent of the Passenger Load Factor in the inflight connectivity realm and quantifies how many passengers can enjoy a real broadband experience during their flight, while the aircraft is connected to an A2G network.


Broadband Aviation 2023 is happening during AIX

For the third time, thought leaders in the aviation industry will share their views on broadband in the sky from various perspectives, including passenger experience, airline profitability, technology, and how connectivity can contribute to airlines' sustainability agendas. As airlines are starting to invest into eVTOL aircraft for bridging the gap between airports and city centers, the topic of Advanced Air Mobility will be discussed for the first time. For the full list of speakers, please refer to Shashank Nigam, #1 Amazon bestselling author of SOAR, will be available for a book signing session on Tuesday at 3pm, following his interview.
