Row 44, based in Westlake Village, Calif., on Monday announced it has installed its broadband entertainment solution on 250 planes for the company's commercial airline partners in North America, Europe and Africa. The company said it is currently equipping several planes each week and has orders to install its broadband solution aboard hundreds more aircraft.

"Installing our 250th plane for airlines on three continents clearly establishes Row 44 as the global leader in in-flight broadband entertainment," said Howard Lefkowitz, Row 44's chief commercial officer. "Airlines and their passengers are demanding ever-more bandwidth and broadband services in-flight – from connectivity, to a selection of live television channels, to a library of on-demand movies and TV shows, and more. Row 44's satellite-based broadband entertainment platform is uniquely positioned to accomplish this. Although several in-flight broadband providers claim to be 'developing' global solutions, Row 44 has actually done it. We look forward to continuing to work with innovative airlines around the world to create an outstanding broadband experience for every air traveler."
