Boeing and Global Eagle Entertainment partner to offer line-fit satellite connectivity for commercial aircraft
Boeing and Global Eagle Entertainment have signed a new technical services agreement (TSA) to evaluate Global Eagle Entertainment’s (GEE) satellite-based connectivity solution for line-fit offer ability to airlines worldwide. The TSA is an important milestone in offering airline customers the option to purchase the GEE connectivity system pre-installed on new delivery Boeing 737 and 787 aircraft. GEE delivers content and connectivity to the world’s largest fleet of Ku-band satellite-connected aircraft, with over 550 planes flying with the GEE system over four continents. Evaluation by Boeing and GEE is expected to be completed during 2015.
