Malaysia Airlines Signs Deal for Satellite Tracking

Malaysia Airlines Signs Deal for Satellite Tracking
Ryan Boyd

Malaysia Airlines has signed a deal with Aireon, FlightAware and SITAONAIR for a network of satellites that will allow the carrier to track all of its aircraft, even in locations as far-flung as the polar ice caps. The deal was announced even as the embattled airline continues its investigation into the tragic disappearance of MH370 and the 239 people aboard the flight.

“Malaysia Airlines has taken a lead role in the industry since the tragic events of 2014,” said Don Thoma, Chief Executive Officer of Aireon. “Real-time, global flight tracking, anywhere on the planet will further its safety goals, by allowing Malaysia Airlines to track its aircraft anytime, anywhere.”
