Neos Adds Viasat In-Flight Connectivity To Its Fleet Of Boeing 787 Dreamliners

Two Companies Will Collaborate On A Customized Portal To Access The System

Italian leisure airline Neos has begun offering in-flight internet services from Viasat aboard its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Neos selected Viasat for its industry-leading satellite communications systems, which are widely-recognized for delivering high-value, premium in-flight internet performance-at-scale.

"Viasat has a reputation for delivering superior, highly-reliable in-flight internet experiences—and we are happy to provide this level of service to all Neos guests today and well into the future," said Carlo Stradiotti, CEO, Neos. "We're excited about Viasat's global communications roadmap—as we'll have access to the world's most advanced satellite systems to help realize our goal: to deploy fully connected capabilities across our entire modernized fleet."

To meet the growing broadband demands of its passengers, Neos will have access to Viasat's current satellite communications systems in North America to the Caribbean and tip of northern South America; over the Atlantic Ocean; in Europe, through its jointly-owned satellite; as well as the ViaSat-3 satellite constellation under development.

"We're driven to meet our airline partners' current and future connectivity needs by bringing proven, scalable communications technology to their fleets," said Don Buchman, vice president and general manager, Commercial Aviation at Viasat. "In working with Neos, we recognized their interest to bring a best-in-class and reliable in-flight internet experience to every passenger—with fast in-flight web browsing and rich online media streaming. We're confident that our system's superior capacity, consistency and growing reach will meet Neos' long-term in-flight connectivity requirements."

In addition to tapping into Viasat's high-capacity communications satellite via the latest-generation Viasat in-flight internet equipment, Neos will also work with Viasat on a customized portal, giving passengers an easy interface to connect to the onboard Wi-Fi system.
