LiveTV, a subsidiary of JetBlue Airways Corporation, and Greenwich AeroGroup Inc., have entered into a distribution agreement. Greenwich Aerogroup, Inc. and its affiliates will sell, support and install the Iridium OpenPort-Aero broadband aviation communications platform.
“Iridium OpenPort-Aero underscores LiveTV’s commitment to providing the best value satellite services to our customers, especially in the general aviation marketplace, and also enables connectivity where it doesn’t exist,” said LiveTV President, Glenn Latta. “Iridium OpenPort-Aero offers the right blend of value and capability to customers who need to stay connected via their smart phones, tablets or laptops while in-flight.”
Iridium OpenPort-Aero is aimed at operators looking to upgrade aircraft voice and data connectivity systems without geographical limits and at the most affordable ownership cost available to the market.
“We are excited to be able to team with LiveTV on delivering Iridium OpenPort-Aero to the market,” said Vice President of Greenwich AeroGroup’s Sales and Marketing division, Daniel Lafrance. “This relationship fits well with our goal of expanding the innovative solutions we bring forth to our customers.
Greenwich AeroGroup will provide initial certification, sales and installation support for the Iridium OpenPort-Aero product line at its Atlantic Aero location in Greensboro, North Carolina, its Western Aircraft location in Boise, Idaho or Summit Aviation in Middletown, Delaware.
