Valour Consultancy has published a new whitepaper assessing how COVID-19 has influenced the in-flight connectivity (IFC) sector.
The competitive environment around IFC has proven to be just as vulnerable to the impact of COVID-19 as the broader commercial aviation sector. The industry has experienced a loss of valuable experience in the workforce, deferral of new satellite launches, airline bankruptcies and aircraft groundings.
Those seeking a more positive outlook could refer to impetus the pandemic has had on digitalisation, with more airlines adopting technology in and around the cabin. Furthermore, airline decision-makers remain mostly unmoved in terms of the positive sentiment shown toward IFC, recognising its fundamental role in recovery and beyond.
How will the pandemic’s legacy affect future IFC adoption by airlines? What impact will this have on the competitive environment around connectivity technologies? Read the free whitepaper to find out.
