  • JetBlue will provide free satellite Wi-Fi called Fly-Fi on every aircraft by fall 2016!

On Wednesday the airline company announced they will provide high speed and free in flight Wi-Fi called Fly-Fi to all of its passengers.

JetBlue will be providing passengers with free Wi-Fi. The services will be available from 2016. The Wi-Fi provided will be free and high speed for all in flight passengers.

The satellite Wi-Fi system has already been installed in numerous JetBlue aircrafts. In over 150 aircrafts of the model Airbus A320 and A321 the Fly-Fi in-flight Wi-Fi has been installed. 

Jamie Perry is the VP of brand and product development at JetBlue. According to Perry they hope all of their customers benefit from the new service.

"Soon every JetBlue customer will step onboard knowing their aircraft is equipped with free, fast Internet and entertainment, the same way they expect our friendly service and the most legroom in coach," said Jamie Perry, vice president of brand and product development, JetBlue.

"Our Fly-Fi model has proven that there is a way to offer customers more without adding extra costs to their travel."

The Fly-Fi system will ensure all the passengers are given high speed internet without any extra charges. At least passengers on board JetBlue will remain assured of free internet. The Fly-Fi is expected to provide a speed of 20Mbps on every device at 35,000 feet in the air. T

The speed is sufficient for passengers to browse the web and even watch movies on Hulu or Netflix. If successful, JetBlue will be the first airline to provide free Wi-Fi service to all passengers. 

Virgin America also seems to be following in the footsteps of JetBlue. The airline Virgin America previously offered free internet on a trial basis in their planes. The trial was offered during the month of July in 10 Virgin America planes.

For passengers wishing to download heavy data files JetBlue will offer chargeable services. The Fly-Fi Plus service will charge $9 for downloading huge files or to use a VPN.
