Global Eagle agrees new PONANT deal

Global Eagle Entertainment has agreed a new deal with French-owned cruise line PONANT for the delivery of new technology and satellite television services to its existing fleet and for six newbuild ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The three-year contract builds on an existing relationship between the companies that stretches back to 2015. The new deal includes expanded television and video options, with each of PONANT’s four existing ships to be upgraded with new 3.6-metre TVRO antennas.

“PONANT customers demand the best amenities on board and we are proud to be a valued partner that helps to enrich time during each voyage,” said Global Eagle senior VP maritime Ole Sivertsen.

“As each new ship goes to sea, it will have the newest technology and premium entertainment to ensure great experiences on board.”

Ponant is launching two new ships this year, Le Lapérouse and Le Champlain, following by four in 2019 and 2020: Le Bougainville, Le Dumont D’Urville, then Le Surville and Le Bellot.{/mprestriction}
