Aerkomm Inc. of California, USA, has signed a strategic co-operation framework agreement with Guangdong Tengnan Internet Information Technology Co, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shenzhen Tencent Computer Systems Co. Ltd.

Through the terms of the agreement, Aerkomm and Tencent will co-operate to consider ways of incorporating Tencent’s platform product offerings such as WeChat Pay and QQ instant messaging into Aerkomm’s in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems.

With the incorporation of Tencent technology, users of Aerkomm’s in-flight systems should be able to access rapid mobile phone interconnection and in-flight Wi-Fi, among other things.

Jeffrey Wun, CEO of Aerkomm said, “The overall presentation of in-flight entertainment services can be enriched and a closed loop of user experience can be created based on a demand for Aerkomm’s products in combination with Tencent’s numerous technologically superior internet-based offerings.”
