Swift 64

Swift 64 provides a range of fast, flexible and secure data applications for cockpit and passengers.

The in-flight broadband speeds it provides helps to improve the passenger experience, while giving the flight deck better bandwidth, improving planning, weather and chart updates. It also delivers a high-quality voice service, comparable with land-based fixed phone services.


Swift 64 is a circuit-switched, Mobile ISDN service providing the same high-quality speed as terrestrial ISDN.

The symmetric service to and from the aircraft supports one, two or four-channel avionics. Higher bandwidth can be achieved by bonding up to four 64kbps channels together – yielding up to 256kbps or higher with data compression.

Fast and flexible

In its 64kbps-per-channel form, Swift 64 provides ample bandwidth for flight planning, weather and chart updates.

Enhanced data

Optional bonding of channels yields up to 256kbps and data compression allows for optimisation of channel usage by conveying larger amounts of data in the same timeframe.

Secure connections

Compatible with government-grade encryption and secure standards, including STU-IIIb and STE, Taclane, KIV-7 and Brent.

Global coverage

Delivered within the Inmarsat-3 regional beams.
