LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/. ACCESSWIRE. Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) and Air Lease Corporation (NYSE: AL), today announced they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with regards to a strategic marketing partnership for Airborne Wireless Network's proposed broadband wireless network, trademarked as "Infinitus Super Highway™."
Airborne Wireless Network is developing its "Infinitus Super Highway™," which contemplates providing a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight as repeaters, which will send and receive broadband signals from one aircraft to another.
Under the terms of the agreement, Air Lease Corporation will act as the exclusive marketing agent and use its extensive network of airline customers to market the "Infinitus Super Highway™" to multiple airline customers throughout the world.
Jason T. de Mos, Vice President of Business Development and Aviation Compliance said, "Air Lease Corporation is one of the world's largest aircraft leasing companies. We are excited that they are on board to market our system to their worldwide airline customers and to introduce us to manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus with the goal of having our equipment pre-wired on new aircraft. Our collaboration will be a big step toward making our vision a reality, as we believe our airborne digital highway is the logical solution to fill the world's connectivity void. This partnership is a perfect fit for our strategy and will contribute significantly to the future of Airborne Wireless."

About Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN)
The Company intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. Each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next and creating a digital superhighway in the sky. The Company intends the network to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity. The Company does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users, but, instead, act as a wholesale carrier with target customers, such as internet service providers and telephone companies.
Currently, the world's connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground based fiber and satellites. The Company believes that the Company's airborne digital highway is the logical solution to fill the world's connectivity void. Once the network is developed and fully implemented, its uses are virtually limitless. The Company's network, once developed, should provide low cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, in addition to connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.
