EL AL Israel Airlines Goes Full Fleet with Viasat High-Speed Internet; Airline Plans to Outfit all Widebody and Narrowbody Aircraft with Viasat's Latest In-Flight Connectivity SystemsEL AL Plans to Accelerate Equipment Activations on Viasat's Existing Networks as it Readies its Fleet for Viasat's Future Generation Satellites, including ViaSat-3

 

 

TEL AVIV, Israel and CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EL AL Israel Airlines, the national air carrier of Israel, and Viasat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT), a global communications company, today announced they expanded their successful relationship, adding the Boeing 777 widebody fleet to the mix of EL AL aircraft with Viasat's equipment for high-speed in-flight connectivity (IFC). In addition to the Boeing 777 fleet, Viasat equipment currently powers the connectivity experience across EL AL's Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Boeing 737-900 and part of Boeing 737-800 aircraft. EL AL plans to have all widebody aircraft equipped with Viasat's latest generation IFC solution and all narrow-body fleet equipped with Viasat's in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) offering. EL AL expects to have the majority of its fleet connected with the Viasat service by the end of 2020.

 

"EL AL takes great pride in being an innovative airline, and they continue to push the in-flight connectivity boundaries," said Don Buchman, vice president and general manager, Commercial Aviation, Viasat. "EL AL was first to launch Viasat's fast IFC service in Europe and the Middle East; first to deploy high-speed internet on transatlantic flights using the advanced ViaSat-2 satellite; and are now the first airline to bring IFC to the Boeing 777 aircraft for global routes before the launch of our ViaSat-3 satellite constellation. Enabling high-speed, high-quality internet to their full fleet confirms their dedication to bring customers and crew fast, reliable connectivity serviceóno matter where they fly."

 

The Viasat in-flight Wi-Fi service offers an at-home or office experience in the sky, keeping flight crews connected for enhanced passenger service and enabling passengers using smartphones, tablets or laptop computers the ability to browse websites, connect to email and instant messaging, use apps and social networks and to stream music and/or films when in-flight.

 

Nimrod Borovitz, vice president, Strategy and Business Development at EL AL Israel Airlines Ltd. commented, "We have a vision to serve our passengers and crew members with high-speed, reliable, enriching experiences when flying to and from major global destinations. We've enjoyed a partnership with Viasat, and are excited to have all of our aircraft supported by ViaSat-3óas we believe this will help us realize our vision to make our fleet fully connected. Our ongoing in-flight Wi-Fi investments will enable over time the more than 5 million passengers we fly annually to enjoy the internet how it's supposed to be: great, engaging and available."

Today, EL AL offers three in-flight Wi-Fi packagesóBasic, Social and Businessówhich can be purchased during the flight through the EL AL Wi-Fi portal via credit card or EL AL Matmid Club points.
