“GEE is a clear global IFEC leader that has demonstrated a deep understanding of our business over the past decade, providing the content at the core of our passenger entertainment experience,” said Calum Laming, Vice President of Guest Experience for Etihad Airways. “Now our partner airlines, Jet Airways, airberlin, Alitalia, Air Seychelles and Air Serbia, can provide a compelling and consistent passenger experience together through GEE aboard flights to more than 330 destinations worldwide.

“GEE is honored to expand our longstanding alliance with Etihad Airways and a forward-thinking group of regional and global airlines, through an innovative agreement and partnership committed to delivering a cost-effective and reliable passenger IFE experience across six airlines,” said Walé Adepoju, Chief Commercial Officer for GEE. “As one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, Etihad Airways is helping to set the highest inflight entertainment standards in unique and creative ways.”
