Israeli airline EL AL added a new in-flight WiFi service from Viasat. The first flight with the service took place last month, between Tel Aviv (TLV) and Paris (CDG).
The airline says that 15 Boeing 787 and 737 planes now are equipped with inflight WiFi. EL AL expects to connect the majority of its fleet by 2020.
The new service has three packages:
Basic – Enabling passengers to use instant messaging applications and access emails. This package is free on international flights between Europe and North America, during an initial launch period until the fourth quarter of 2018.
Social – Allowing the streaming of short videos up to three minutes in length, and costing $9.99 per flight, with discounted rates for Matmid frequent Ffyers and Flycard holders.
Business – Allowing the streaming of movies and music, as well as VPN access, costing $23 per flight, again with discounted rates for Matmid frequent flyers and Flycard holders.
“Israeli passengers want to keep up-to-date and connected in real-time even when in the air. We invested in the most advanced in-flight WiFi product from Viasat so that we could best respond to our customers’ interests, from surfing sites, connecting to emails, using apps, viewing social-media networks, listening to music and streaming movies and live sports during flights. EL AL chose Viasat’s in-flight WiFi system because they had the most advanced product,” said Nimrod Borovitz, director, strategy and business development, EL AL Israel Airlines.
