guestlogix Cantor Fitzgerald Canada analyst Justin Kew says Guestlogix’s (Guestlogix Stock Quote, Chart, News: TSX:GXI) first partnership with a content and connectivity provider is a milestone for the company.

This morning, Guestlogix announced that it had reached an agreement with Global Eagle Entertainment that will see the Canadian company incorporate its OnTouch merchandising platform into Global Eagle Entertainment’s inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) portal.
