OneWeb has appointed Ben Griffin to the role of Vice President for Commercial Aviation to lead the company’s newly formed Commercial Aviation team.
In his new role, based at OneWeb’s White City, London HQ, Ben is responsible for delivering in-flight connectivity solutions, harnessing the power of Low Earth Orbit satellites with unprecedented speed and low latency, to the airline fraternity.
Ben delivers 20 years of aviation experience to OneWeb, the last 15 of which were spent in the aircraft connectivity sector, most recently with Inmarsat for eight years. He will bring deep experience of the connected aircraft world to OneWeb.
OneWeb will power applications in aviation using global availability of high capacity speeds and lowest latency, delivering seamless broadband to ultimately maximize the passenger experience.
Ben Griffin commented that he is 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. Currently, airlines are not getting value for what they are paying for, nor a consistently acceptable level of service globally. OneWeb will change that when the company’s service goes live and passengers are invited to bring and use their own device, which will bring huge benefits to both passengers and airlines.
OneWeb will be attending APEX EXPO in Los Angeles, California from September 9th to 12th.
