Noerr advises Inmarsat on ten year contract with Lufthansa Group for the provision of inflight connectivity services
Noerr has advised Inmarsat on a contract with Lufthansa Group to provide high-speed inflight connectivity services for passengers onboard Lufthansa’s European continental fleet. The contract, which follows a Memorandum of Understanding, formalises not only a ten year strategic partnership between Lufthansa Group and Inmarsat, but also provides a contract framework to extend the service to the other airline brands in the Group.
Under the agreement, Inmarsat will equip more than 150 Lufthansa airlines aircraft with Global Xpress (GX) technology, with additional Lufthansa Group aircraft being added in due course. The first of these aircraft will be equipped and tested in early summer 2016.
A Noerr team led by Berlin partner and telecommunications law specialist Tobias Frevert advised Inmarsat on the negotiation of the contract as well as on the earlier Memorandum of Understanding.
