GEE Brings Satellite Connectivity to New 737s
[Avionics Today 01-20-2015] Global Eagle Entertainment's (GEE) Ku-band satellite connectivity system provisions will now be offerable on new Boeing 737 airplanes — the most popular commercial aircraft offering. The two companies are working on line-fit installation feasibility for catalogue offering consideration. Airlines ordering new Boeing 737 airplanes will then have the option of including pre-installed satellite connectivity by GEE in their aircraft prior to delivery.
"The ability to deliver Ku-band and future Ku-[High Throughput Satellite] HTS connectivity on new Boeing airplane orders enables us to answer the strong demand for a superior in-flight connectivity offering and provides airlines access to the most technically-advanced connectivity solution in the market as a pre-installed option," said Dave Davis, CEO at GEE.
