Aegean Airlines will offer Inmarsat and Deutsche Telekom’s award-winning onboard connectivity on its fleet, with the service going live on all A321neo aircraft.
Aegean has announced that its onboard experience will accelerate further with the introduction of high-speed inflight broadband, powered by the European Aviation Network (EAN). The award-winning connectivity solution, provided by Inmarsat and Deutsche Telekom, will be installed on all existing and new Aegean Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft by 2025, with the first seven entering service this month.
As of this week Aegean passengers will have access to three different Wi-Fi packages, including a free 10-minute “try before you buy” service to browse the internet, send and receive emails, and access messaging and social media applications. This can be extended by selecting either the “text and surf” package or upgrading to the “streaming” option, which adds the capability to watch videos or listen to audio online. As Europe’s fastest inflight broadband solution, EAN offers incomparable speeds, uninterrupted coverage across Europe and significantly lower latency than any other aviation connectivity service on the market.
Under this agreement, Aegean has also partnered with Display Interactive to create a customized digital portal, allowing passengers to access Wi Fi packages and a rich entertainment platform using their personal devices. This enables the passengers to explore multiple entertainment options (music, series, documentaries, cartoons, games, daily news, etc.), receive real time travel information and sign up to Aegean’s Miles+Bonus frequent flyer program. Display Interactive, which is also a partner for Inmarsat’s OneFi passenger experience platform, has developed the portal for Aegean to enhance its passenger experience and enable its inflight connectivity offering.
