Overview Improve in-flight connectivity to wireless networks. In an age when being connected to single-aisle passenger jet Internet means being connected to the wider world, we expect to have Internet access everywhere — including commercial airplanes, where passengers expect easy access to Internet servers, email and in-flight entertainment while airborne. Our antennas improve signal propagation while reducing the amount of hardware required on the plane. These antennas provide reliable connectivity to different wireless systems, including picocells for mobile phone coverage and access points for airborne Wi-Fi. Ideal for both wide-body and single-aisle passenger aircrafts, Gore's antennas significantly reduce dead spots, enabling passengers to connect to wireless networks throughout the cabin.
Sun Country, owned by private equity firm Apollo, will fly 10 of the dedicated cargo planes, starting in the second quarter. Amazon Air, the company's dedicated air service, contracts other airlines to fly the jetliners.

Sun Country Airlines, a small, Minneapolis-based leisure carrier, said late Tuesday it will start flying partnersuche schmalkalden-meiningen fleet of 10 converted Boeing freighters in the second quarter. It's part of a plan Amazon announced earlier this year to expand Amazon Air with the leased single-aisle planes.
Amazon owns warrants to buy minority stakes in both companies and has been bringing more logistics operations in house. In June, Single-aisle passenger jet said it would no longer provide express shipping for Amazon.
Sun Country, which is owned by private equity firm Apollo Global Management, will use the business to help level out the seasonality of single-aisle passenger jet flying, which surges in the first quarter when vacationers head south, CEO Jude Bricker told CNBC.
Those seasonal fluctuations are among "the core challenges we have with growing our business," said Bricker, adding that Amazon's demand peaks in the fourth quarter, before the airline's period of highest demand.
The deal came together last week, but Bricker said he first approached Amazon about a year ago to try to sell the company a used plane, which didn't pan out. Then Amazon earlier this year came back to Sun Country about a cargo deal. Cargo flying "wasn't part of our plan," Bricker said.
Sun Country will add pilot jobs over the next 18 months, bringing its total toto keep up with the extra flying Amazon will require.
