EL AL to Offer ViaSat Inflight WiFi
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.
