Collins Aerospace will work directly with Inmarsat to offer Jet Connex (JX) inflight Wi-Fi to business jet operators. The new agreement will see Collins Aerospace, already a Value Added Reseller (VAR) for the commercial airline and government market segments globally, further strengthening its relationship with Inmarsat.

Through this new VAR arrangement, Collins Aerospace — which was created in 2018 by bringing together UTC Aerospace Systems and Rockwell Collins — will work with Inmarsat to improve the inflight experience for its JX customers. The JX service is offered as part of Collins’ ARINCDirect solution.

“By directly offering Inmarsat’s JX high-speed internet services, combined with our connectivity experience and our proven support, we’ll be able to take our customer value proposition to the next level,” said Collins Aerospace Vice President (VP) of Business and Government Aviation Services David Poltorak. “We have been a Level 1 distributor of Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband for many years. Now, as a Level 1 VAR of JX, we can continue working collaboratively with Inmarsat to provide our customers with top-line support and tools.”
