The agreement covers up to 130 A320 aircraft at ATS’s maintenance facility in Everett, Wash. Additional Ka-band installations will be accomplished at JetBlue’s LiveTV subsidiary in Orlando.
The technology was designed by LiveTV, which will be conducting training and technical support to ATS to ensure a quality installation.
All Airbus A320 installations are expected to be completed by the end of 2014.
Fly-Fi, JetBlue’s brand for wireless inflight internet, will use satellite-based connectivity, while most carriers use the Ku-band ground-based systems.
