Intelsat to provide inflight connectivity for Alaska 737 MAX fleet

Alaska Airlines has chosen Intelsat to provide inflight connectivity on 105 of its new fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

Alaska Airlines’ new 737 MAX deliveries will be fitted with Intelsat’s ‘2Ku’ inflight connectivity and streaming entertainment system, which is already featured on more than 150 aircraft in Alaska’s fleet.

The new agreement represents the largest expansion of the inflight connectivity relationship between the two companies to date. Alaska passengers will have “access to everything on the internet, including streaming sites”, the airline said.

“Alaska is committed to delivering a connected experience that gives their guests a high-speed internet service and high-quality content. I couldn’t be happier that they chose Intelsat as their partner,” said Dave Bijur, senior vice president of commercial in Intelsat’s commercial aviation division.

“Our continuous launch of satellites over the next several years, starting with Intelsat 40e next year, puts us in a position to deliver reliability, redundancy and speed – all of which maximise guest satisfaction.”
