AEGEAN is upgrading its travel experience, now offering its passengers the opportunity to access the internet during their flight and enjoy entertainment content through its new digital platform. From today, all AEGEAN passengers traveling on one of the already equipped AIRBUS neo aircraft will have the opportunity to browse the internet, manage their emails, access social media and messaging applications, as well as download video and audio content.
As new aircraft are received and the fleet is gradually equipped, all passengers will be able to try the service for free for 10 minutes with the package "Free 10", while those who wish to maintain access to the service throughout the flight can choose the package "Text and surf" or the "Stream" package for greater speed and the ability to watch videos or listen to audio on the Internet. The "Stream" service package will be available free of charge to all Business Class passengers. The “Text & Surf” package will also be offered free of charge to Gold members of the Miles + Bonus program, while similar benefits will be offered in the future to other special categories of passengers.
Consequently, passengers will be able to stay connected to the internet and at the same time enjoy TV series, documentaries, and children's programs through the upgraded entertainment platform.
The CEO of AEGEAN, Mr. Dimitris Gerogiannis said: "We are very happy that today, thanks to the AEGEAN Wi-Fi onboard, an investment that shapes the digital future of travel, we are providing another high-quality service for every passenger. Our investments in modern technological infrastructure and in the technological transformation of AEGEAN did not stop being realized even during the pandemic crisis that hit the industry so hard. The provision of in-flight internet is another milestone for us and for our commitment to provide our passengers with quality and a constantly upgraded travel experience. We are very pleased to have worked with Inmarsat, Deutsche Telecom and Display Interactive, all leading technology companies in their field. ”
Philippe Carette, President of Inmarsat Aviation, said: “The technological solution we offer is significant in the industry and already enjoys the preference of the leading aviation market in Europe. That is why we are very happy that AEGEAN trusted us and worked with us, as well as with Deutche Telekom, to provide its passengers with a world-class travel experience ".
Rolf Nafziger, Senior Vice President of Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier, added: "The European Aviation Network is a technology solution perfectly adapted to Europe's telecommunications infrastructure. For AEGEAN passengers, it offers an unparalleled connectivity experience while flying over the European continent, while for the company it is an extremely smart business move due to the equipment's small size, weight and maintenance requirements. Thanks to this, EAN will not only provide unrivaled connectivity to AEGEAN passengers today but for many years to come."
