Innovative Connectivity - Connecting the future … …
The 9th Inflight Connectivity Technology Conference (ICT 2020) will be held in Shanghai, China on 22-23April 2020.
In 2015, the inflight connection of Chinese civil aviation started its pilot commercial operation, and in January 2018, CAAC lifted the ban on using mobile phones during flights. Since then, over the past two years, the inflight connection of Chinese aviation has entered the building up stage for the infrastructure facilities and the sector has been on the eve of explosive growth.
Since its initiation in 2013, the ICT Conference has always been a platform to provide service for the great progress of integration between Chinese aviation and internet technology. There has been leap-forward development of information technology and there are more and more needs for transformation and innovation in the airplane cabins. Subsequently, the ICT conference continues to widen the horizon to follow the trend, introduces new technologies, attracts more professional talents, and further explores the value and feasible channels for inflight connection.
