Global Eagle Entertainment Inc., a worldwide provider of aircraft connectivity systems, operations solutions and media content to the travel industry, announced it has signed an agreement to deliver a broad range of content aboard Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) flights, according to a press release from the company on 28 September.
Myanmar National Airline's new airstream inflight entertainment system features GEE's industry-leading movie and music line-ups, and GEE's AIRGAMES, as well as flight and passenger safety video presentations on MNA's growing fleet of new aircraft.
“Myanmar is embarking on an exciting resurgence of its national airline and Global Eagle Entertainment is proud to be the preferred content provider aboard Myanmar National Airlines' new, growing fleet,” noted Amir Samnani, senior vice president of Content Service for Global Eagle Entertainment. "GEE-delivered movies, music and games are bound to make for an enjoyable passenger experience on flights throughout this Southeast Asian nation and aboard the country's first international route in two decades," Samnani added, referring to MNA's new international flight to Singapore.
Global Eagle Entertainment content will be offered on MNA's expanding service to 26 domestic destinations, the most of any airline in Myanmar, and a growing international network of flights across the Asia-Pacific region.
“Myanmar National Airlines is undergoing a multi-million-dollar reinvigoration of our country's national carrier, and Global Eagle Entertainment content will play a significant role in our ability to deliver a world class passenger experience,” said Captain Than Tun, chief executive officer of Myanmar National Airlines. “While MNA has a long and proud 67-year heritage, we are focused on refreshing our brand and giving the country of Myanmar an airline that is a strong, competitive force in the region,” Tun added. “We look forward to tapping into GEE's vast experience and expertise as we take our airline to new heights with new aircraft, new services and an elevated focus on providing a quality passenger experience.”
