Global Eagle Celebrates More Than 1,000 Installed Aircraft

Los Angeles – July 31, 2018 – Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: ENT) announces that it now has more than 1,000 aircraft worldwide installed with Global Eagle WiFi equipment and service, and recently installed WiFi on the 700th satellite-connected aircraft with Southwest Airlines, which has been a Global Eagle customer for 10 years.

Global Eagle is proud to lead the industry by having both line-fit factory installation and in-market retrofit for the new Boeing 737MAX aircraft.

“Global Eagle continues to grow on all continents and deliver industry-leading technology and customer experience as consumer habits evolve,” said Josh Marks, Global Eagle CEO.

Global Eagle enables airlines to provide passengers with satellite connectivity, live TV, on-demand movies and entertainment, games, flight information and revenue-generating advertising. For Southwest, customers also enjoy newly deployed live streaming iHeartRadio music.

“We will deliver innovative and integrated connectivity, content solutions and continued best-in-class service to all customers globally,” said Per Norén, Global Eagle EVP & Chief Commercial Officer.

Global Eagle is committed to continuous innovation in an open architecture approach that promises the best In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) solution, with the right economics. Our use of Ku-band and Ka-band, with industry-first tests coming later this year for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, ensures that new and cost-efficient options provide airlines future-ready passenger experience without technological or economic lock-in.
