Multiyear Deal Taps Global Eagle's Content Platform and Expertise on 170+ Aircraft
Today Global Eagle announced a strategic, multiyear content service agreement with Qatar Airways.
Global Eagle will provide a suite of core inflight entertainment (IFE) content services, including movies, music, TV and audio on in-cabin and seatback systems aboard 164 of Qatar Airways' commercial airliners, 8 Qatar Amiri charter aircraft and 12 Qatar Executive business jets.
Global Eagle and Qatar Airways initiated their alliance in 2009 and have since more than doubled the content aboard Qatar Airways flights, which now feature 3,000 content choices. Global Eagle also provides ongoing promotional support of Qatar Airways IFE content through in-house production and Qatar Airways social media channels.
"Global Eagle has the inflight entertainment content solutions and expertise that are central to the development and deployment of the inflight entertainment platform across our Qatar Airways commercial and specialized fleets," said Salam Al Shawa, senior vice president Marketing and Corporate Communications for Qatar Airways. "Qatar Airways is dedicated to providing a great inflight passenger experience, and our collaborative partnership with Global Eagle will help to ensure our IFE content is relevant, enjoyable and a true differentiator our airline can count on for years to come."
"This new content services agreement represents exciting inflight entertainment growth opportunities for Qatar Airways and a commitment to provide the best travel experience for its passengers," said Walé Adepoju, Global Eagle's executive vice president of Media and Content. "Qatar Airways is greatly enhancing its overall passenger experience by tapping Global Eagle's unsurpassed IFE content in the sky. We look forward to launching these new services across the Qatar Airways fleet, which is now poised to provide the very latest movies, television and audio programming on regional and international flights."
