Global Eagle Ent to provide satellite-based in-flight entertainment to Jet Airways

NEW DELHI: Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. - worldwide provider of aircraft connectivity systems, operations solutions and media content to the travel industry – has entered into a partnership with Jet Airways to provide inflight entertainment (IFE) streaming service and KU based internet connectivity aboard the global airline's fleet of B737 NG aircraft.

Jet Airways, which operates more than 300 flights to 73 destinations worldwide, selected Global Eagle Entertainment in a fiercely competitive IFE market based, in part, on its 10-year content delivery alliance and experience with GEE. 

During Q2 2016, the Los Angeles-based GEE will provide Jet Airways with its Airtime IFE streaming solution, with a clear roadmap for migration to full broadband satellite connectivity. GEE will equip Jet Airways aircraft with digital rights management (DRM) technology, in-cabin servers and WiFi routers, enabling the proven Airtime streaming platform to deliver movies, TV shows, music and other content directly to passengers' laptops, tablets and smart phones.

GEE chief commercial officer Walé Adepoju said, “GEE is honoured to expand our long-term partnership with Jet Airways, an innovative airline keenly focused on elevating the passenger experience and a true leader across the exciting Asian region.By deploying GEE's Airtime IFE streaming solution across its growing fleet, Jet Airways can deliver a broad range of entertainment content to passenger's personal devices with an eye on full blown satellite connectivity aboard future flights.”

“GEE has clearly demonstrated a deep understanding of our business over the past decade, providing the content at the core of our passenger entertainment experience. Jet Airways is now moving to GEE's integrated IFE solution capable of streaming a broad range of content to our passengers' own devices and providing a clear path to our future connectivity needs," said Jet SVP - commercial Gaurang Shetty. “We look forward to growing our partnership with GEE and, in turn, enhancing our passenger experience across our global fleet.”
