JetBlue giving all passengers free in-flight 'Fly-Fi' high-speed Wi-Fi
Flying in an airplane can be quite the stressful ordeal; it can be a hassle to travel to the airport, go through security, and to board the aircraft. Once on the plane, it can be cramped and uncomfortable. To make matters worse, many airlines charge for Wi-Fi access. Ugh!
Today, JetBlue announces something miraculous for travelers. Every one of its passengers will have access to free in-flight high-speed Wi-Fi, which it calls 'Fly-Fi'. This is on every single aircraft in its fleet. In other words, if you are flying JetBlue, you get free high-speed internet.
"JetBlue's Fly-Fi, which clocks in at broadband speeds beating sluggish and pricey Wi-Fi offerings onboard other carriers, keeps customers connected with an Internet experience similar to what they have at home, including the ability to stream video and use multiple devices at once. The service enables JetBlue to deliver Amazon Video streaming entertainment to customers onboard to their personal devices, as well as web surfing and chatting on favorite messaging apps," says JetBlue.
Jamie Perry, vice president of marketing, JetBlue explains, "It's 2017 and our customers expect to be connected everywhere, whether that be from the comfort of their sofa or 35,000 feet above it. That's why we're so proud that JetBlue is now the only airline to offer free, high-speed Wi-Fi, live TV and movies for all customers on every plane".
In addition to the free internet access, JetBlue is also providing free in-flight entertainment, although some of the offerings are limited to certain aircraft models. You can see more details on the infographic below.
