OneWeb has announced the appointment of Ben Griffin as vice president for Commercial Aviation, leading its newly formed Commercial Aviation team.
Griffin commented: “I am delighted to have joined a company with so much potential. The OneWeb offering is by a long way, simply the best technology, best suited to the aviation market. It stands to significantly change the landscape of passenger connectivity with its ability to deliver consistently strong internet coverage across the world in a way that is often promised, but rarely delivered.”
He added: “Right now airlines are not getting value for what they are paying for, nor a consistently acceptable level of service globally. We will change that when our service goes live and we invite passengers to not only bring their own device, but to use their own device, which will bring huge benefits to both passengers and airlines.”
The company plans to make its international aviation debut at APEX EXPO in September.
