[Via Satellite 10-27-2015] In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) provider Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) has doubled its satellite capacity from SES through a new multi-year, multi-transponder agreement.

During the past two quarters, GEE has secured additional SES Ku-band capacity, adding bandwidth on six SES satellites — SES 1, AMC 1, AMC 2, AMC 3, NSS 12 and Astra 4A — to connect airline passengers across the globe. The company is also planning to use major portions of High Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity aboard the SES 12, SES 14 and SES 15 satellites, which are currently under construction and scheduled for launch in 2017. Under the expanded relationship with GEE, SES is also providing teleport services, ground infrastructure and expertise in the aviation and mobility markets.
