EL AL to Of­fer Vi­aSat In­flight WiFi

Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

EL AL has agreed to be the launch cus­tomer in Europe for Exede In The Air, the in-flight In­ter­net ser­vice from Vi­aSat Inc. The two com­pa­nies will be­gin work­ing to­ward cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and in­stal­la­tion of the Exede ter­mi­nals on EL AL air­craft with a tar­get date to launch ser­vice within one year.

Vi­aSat plans ini­tially to deliver the ser­vice to EL AL Boe­ing 737s fly­ing routes from Tel Aviv into sev­eral Euro­pean cities.

Exede in-flight In­ter­net ser­vice uses an in­no­va­tive, high-ca­pac­ity Ka-band satel­lite sys­tem de­vel­oped by Vi­aSat. The sys­tem en­ables air­lines to pro­vide a con­sis­tent 12 Mbps or more to each con­nected pas­sen­ger, rather than sim­ply de­liv­er­ing an ag­gre­gate amount of band­width to the plane leav­ing pas­sen­gers com­pet­ing for ser­vice.
