On July 28, 2020, Aerkomm Inc. (the “Company”) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary in Malta, Aerkomm Pacific Ltd., (“Aerkomm Malta”) entered into an agreement with Airbus Interior Services on July 24, 2020 for the Aerkomm K++ Connectivity Solution Installation on the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.

 

This new agreement between Aerkomm Malta and Airbus Interior Services follows an agreement Aircom Pacific Inc. (“Aircom”) signed with Airbus ACJ in November 2018 pursuant to which Airbus agreed to develop, install and certify the Aerkomm K++ System on a prototype A320 aircraft to EASA and FAA certification standards. Under the new agreement, Aerkomm Malta and Airbus Interior Services have agreed that Airbus Interior Services will provide and certify, in accordance with Airbus Design Organization Approval, a complete retrofit solution to develop EASA/FAA certified Service Bulletins, to supply related Aircraft Modification Kits, and to install the Aerkomm K++ Connectivity solution on the A320 family of commercial aircraft. This new agreement also includes Airbus support for the integration of the Aerkomm K++ System components on the aircraft, including ARINC 791 structural reinforcements and related engineering work.

 

Additionally, Airbus Interior Services will provide support for National Airworthiness Authorities (NAA) certification as required in addition to the EASA certification, as well as on-site technical support at the Maintenance Repair Organization (MRO) base for the aircraft retrofit.

 

A copy of the press release, dated July 28, 2020, relating to the new Airbus agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
