Cockpit connectivity has been a crucial capability for airlines for many years. Their use of cockpit datalinks helps to ensure smooth aircraft and airline operations. This technology is now being leveraged into communications with air traffic control authorities and aircrews, which will allow the continued evolution of airspace into more direct routing and improved flight profiles. Meanwhile, passengers are continuing to gain access to datalinks while in flight. A significant number of airlines have invested in Wi-Fi and picocell onboard connectivity. Passenger adoption of the capability has been modest to this point, perhaps due to pricing. This study examines revenue forecasts and trends in the cockpit datalink and passenger connectivity markets globally through 2020.
