[Avionics Today 05-21-15] Avianca Holdings has selected Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) to provide the In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) service onboard its subsidiary airlines. Through this long-term agreement, GEE will provide a variety of international and regional IFE, including movies, TV programming and audio, to Avianca's fleet of more than 168 aircraft.

The agreement will also be extended to provide content services on the more than 33 A320neo aircraft that Avianca recently committed on order from Airbus. In addition, GEE will also provide content technical services to the airlines.

"We're delighted to be selected as the content service provider across Avianca's entire fleet," explained Amir Samnani, senior vice president of content at GEE. "Latin America is an important market for GEE, as it is one of the fastest growing regions in the world.”
