Row 44 has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to equip commercial aircraft in Europe with its broadband connectivity platform.
“EASA approval marks another major milestone for Row 44, clearing the final hurdle for us to offer our inflight broadband connectivity platform on another continent,” explained chief commercial officer Howard Lefkowitz. “Planes equipped with it will soon be flying all across Europe with a full menu of inflight broadband services – internet, video, e-commerce, games and more. We will be pioneering a whole new flying experience for passengers throughout Europe.”
Row 44’s EASA STC currently covers Boeing 737-700, 800 and 900 series airframes.
