Inflight wi-fi coup for Vueling

Spanish carrier Vueling is celebrating after becoming the first low-cost carrier to offer high-speed inflight wi-fi powered by Inmarsat’s European Aviation Network (EAN). The announcement was made by chief customer officer Calum Laming.

Passengers can switch on to the award-winning connectivity service on five initial aircraft, with fleet-wide availability expected early next year. EAN is claimed to be Europe’s fastest inflight broadband service.

Vueling’s soft launch will be followed by a progressive roll-out of the system over the coming months, with installations expected to be completed on its fleet of more than 110 Airbus A319, A320 and A321 aircraft by early next year.

Passengers purchasing wi-fi on Vueling flights will have access to a full range of packages, including ‘Fly and Chat’ for messaging, ‘Fly and Surf’ for browsing and ‘Fly and More’ for streaming.

Inmarsat says EAN’s integrated system delivers consistent wi-fi that enables passengers to browse the internet seamlessly, stream videos, check social media, enjoy real-time interactive applications such as gaming and more.

Vueling is the third airline to make EAN available to passengers and the system in total can now be accessed on more than 250 routes covering key destinations across Europe, including London, Madrid, Barcelona, Geneva and Rome.
