Inmarsat’s European Aviation Network (EAN) received approval this week from Belgian telecom authorities for its ground component service. Again. That’s good news for the inflight connectivity provider as it works to secure the necessary regulatory approvals across Europe in advance of service launch, still expected later this year. It is a setback for Viasat, Eutelsat, and Panasonic Avionics as they fight the EAN deployment through legal and regulatory battles.
