AirCell and Iridium Satellite have reached an agreement that will allow AirCell to offer Iridium-based satellite communications products and services. As part of the agreement, AirCell is expanding its airborne telecommunications product line by developing new Iridium-based products to be offered through AirCell’s existing network of U.S. dealers, as well as through a newly formed network of international dealers. AirCell plans to offer a single point of contact for Iridium aeronautical customers for “all aspects of products and services.” The first Iridium-based products are expected to be certified and available for delivery by the end of this year.
