WiFi in the Brazilian sky

WiFi in the Brazilian sky

Brazilian airline Latam, part of the Chilean-Brazilian Latam Airlines Group – the largest airline in Latin America with subsidiaries in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru – has launched in-flight WiFi on board nine A319 aircraft in domestic routes.

The service will soon be extended to flights to a number of destinations elsewhere in Latin America. The system is part of the Latam Play platform, which aims to bring together in one channel connectivity features and a variety of content.

The 2Ku in-flight, satellite-supported Wi-Fi technology is provided (and was developed) by Gogo, a US-based provider of in-flight broadband Internet service and other connectivity services for commercial and business aircraft.

The airline expects that 30 aircraft of the Airbus A320 family (which includes both A319 and A320) will offer the service by the end of 2018.

The service will be charged at an hourly rate of just under two dollars and offer packages ranging from basic email and messaging to web browsing and streaming.

The Latam Play platform, which already boasts in excess of four million downloads, offers 80 movies and more than 300 series, as well as music, flight maps, daily news and children’s programming. It is available for iOS and Android devices.
