Latam Airlines launches inflight WiFi in partnership with Gogo

Brazil’s airline Latam has launched inflight WiFi onboard nine A319 aircraft in domestic routes. The service will soon be extended to flights to destinations 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 technology is provided by Gogo, a global provider of broadband connectivity products and services for aviation. In a statement, the airline said it is expected that 30 aircraft of the Airbus A320 family (A319 and A320) will offer the services by the end of 2018.
The service will cost R$7.50 (USD 1.85) per hour. There will be packages for basic services (emails, messages) and for web browsing and streaming services. The Latam Play platform is available for iOS and Android devices. It offers 80 movies and more than 300 series, as well as music, flight map, daily news and children’s programming.
The Latam Play app has reached 4 million downloads. In a next stage, the platform plans to offer live TV, said in a statement Eduardo Costa, Marketing & Customer Experience Senior Director at Latam Airlines.
