GEE Ku-band offerable on B737 – may become line-fit option


Following an official announcement on January 20, 2015 Global Eagle Entertainment’s (GEE) Ku-band satellite connectivity system provisions will be offerable on new Boeing 737 aircraft. GEE is also working with Boeing on line-fit installation feasibility as a catalog offering, which would give airlines ordering new B737s the option of including pre-installed satellite connectivity by GEE in their aircraft prior to delivery.

“With the B737 being the most popular aircraft in the world in terms of new orders, this achievement marks a major milestone for GEE to expand its connectivity system offering,” commented Dave Davis, CEO at GEE. “The ability to deliver Ku-band and future Ku-HTS connectivity on new Boeing airplane orders enables us to answer the strong demand for a superior inflight connectivity offering and provides airlines access to the most technically- advanced connectivity solution in the market as a pre-installed option.”
