Aegean facilitates the flight for Startuppers and other passengers 

The well-known airline provides a solution to the problem of Startuppers who until recently both themselves and the other passengers could not connect to the internet during a flight

Aegean is taking another big step towards the travel experience and its passengers by providing its flights with a Wi-Fi connection, new digital services and upgraded digital entertainment content.

The new services

As of today, all AEGEAN passengers who will travel on one of the already equipped AIRBUS neo aircraft will be able to browse the internet, manage their emails, access social media and messaging applications, and download video and audio content. As new aircraft are picked up and the fleet gradually equipped, more and more passengers will be able to use the service AEGEAN Wi-Fi onboard.

All passengers will be able to try the service for free for 10 minutes with the “Free 10package” while those who wish to maintain their access to the service throughout the flight, can choose the “Text and surf” package or the “Stream” package for higher speed and additional ability to watch video or listen to audio online.
