Aircom Pacific signs firm agreement with Airbus for IFEC

Aerkomm logoAerkomm has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Aircom Pacific, has entered into a firm agreement with Airbus for the development by Airbus of a complete solution to install Aircom’s AERKOMM K++ in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) system.

The agreement supersedes a memorandum of understanding that was signed by Aircom and Airbus in March 2018.

Once the AERKOMM K++ system has been certified with Airbus design organization approval and has obtained the relevant certifications from aviation regulators, it will become available for installation on Airbus Corporate Jets (“ACJ”) single aisle aircraft as well as Airbus’ airline commercial aircraft equivalents for post-delivery modification.

Jeffrey Wun, CEO of Aerkomm, said: “This agreement is a milestone for our company.

“Having this firm agreement with Airbus in place, we now have a time frame for the regulatory approval and commercialization of our IFEC AERKOMM K++ system.

“As important, this agreement with Airbus reflects an affirmation of our technology by aviation industry leaders such as Airbus. Further, now that our IFEC system will have an approved retrofit solution by Airbus, we expect that the aviation industries in countries such as China will be more likely to accept our IFEC products for their registered aircraft.

“We look forward to the ongoing development of this collaboration with Airbus.”
