Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (Nasdaq:ENT), a worldwide leading provider of content, connectivity and digital media solutions to airlines, today announced it will provide an inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFE&C) trial on board Air France in partnership with global telecom giant Orange.

On November 27th, Air France and Orange announced that they will test Wi-Fi on board short and medium-haul flights for a period of three months, starting mid-2015.

To successfully deploy Air France's IFE&C solution on two Airbus A320 aircraft, Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) and Orange Business Services, the division of Orange that is dedicated to providing integrated IT and telecom solutions for multinational businesses, have reached an agreement to deliver an integrated IFE&C solution to drive new innovations. Supporting the digital transformation of Air France, the new solution will enhance the overall passenger experience.

GEE will combine its Ku-band satellite connectivity solution, its inflight wireless portal and IFE content with Orange Business Services' expertise in end-to-end integration services.
Orange Business Services will benefit from GEE's leadership and expertise in inflight entertainment and connectivity to make this pilot phase with Air France a success.

"This partnership and new connectivity project offers the most technically advanced and commercially pioneering IFE&C solution in the industry," said Dave Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Global Eagle Entertainment. "Orange's expertise in mobile solutions and end-to-end integration, combined with GEE's connectivity solutions and content offering, will provide Air France and its passengers a cutting-edge inflight solution. Having worked with Air France for over 10 years on content, we are excited to expand the relationship by adding connectivity and partnering with Orange."
