SES and Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) have announced further significant Ku-band capacity agreements, securing multiple transponders of wide beam coverage on SES’s NSS-12 and AMC-1 satellites.

The extra capacity is to meet the fast-growing passenger and airline demand for more connectivity across India, Central Asia, the Middle East and North America.

GEE is now using 12 SES satellites to put together a complementary mix of Ku-band wide beam and upcoming Ku-band high throughput satellite (HTS) spot beam coverage to meet various levels of inflight connectivity demand along travel routes around the globe.

Inflight connectivity

Dave Davis, CEO at GEE, said: “GEE is in the midst of a strategic expansion of our global inflight connectivity network to meet the growing and evolving demands of airlines and their passengers for a new wave of high-speed Wi-Fi-based services.

“Together with SES, GEE continues to proactively add significant levels of bandwidth over established inflight connectivity markets, as well as developing regions such as Asia and the Middle East where passenger demand is accelerating the deployment of connected aircraft over new routes.”

Elias Zaccack, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Americas, and head of Global Mobility solutions at SES, added: “SES has built a robust and scalable global infrastructure to meet the growing demand for inflight entertainment and connectivity.

“SES is committed to delivering a great mobile experience to airline passengers, and these latest capacity agreements with GEE will bring a new level of inflight connectivity to both expanding and emerging markets.”
