Thai LCC Nok Air to offer satellite-based connectivity

Global Eagle Entertainment provides airlines with Ku-band satellite connectivity via its wholly owned subsidiary, Row 44.

Thai low-cost carrier Nok Air has partnered with Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) to equip its fleet of aircraft with Ku-band satellite-based connectivity and content services.

The deal follows the start of a partnership between GEE and Thaicom Public Company Limited, which will see the two companies jointly develop, implement and support in-flight connectivity solutions for airlines in Thailand and across Southeast Asia.

Patee Sarasin, CEO of Nok Airlines Plc, commented: “The quality and reliability of GEE’s service, combined with Nok Air’s commitment to providing innovative services, will further enhance our brand and strengthen our offering to passengers.”

John LaValle, Global Eagle Entertainment’s CEO, added: “GEE’s connectivity service operates both over land and water, making it the ideal solution for airlines such as Nok Air that have numerous over-water routes. Supported by our partnership with Thaicom, we remain focused on further expanding our presence across the growing Southeast Asia region.”

Future Travel Experience Up in the airIf you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.

The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
