Business-class boutique airline La Compagnie, which flies between New York and Paris, has partnered with Viasat, to equip its brand-new, all business-class A321neo aircraft with high-speed Wi-Fi capabilities.
The Wi-Fi service is scheduled to enter into service in April 2019, alongside 76 full flat seats.
“We are excited to offer unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi to all the passengers onboard our new aircraft,” said Jean Charles Périno, executive vice-president of sales and marketing for La Compagnie.
“Business class democratisation is in our DNA. This is a perfect match with Viasat’s solution: we will be offering this unlimited Wi-Fi access at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions, following our low-fare approach. We are proud, as a small airline, to have the best in the market to offer to our passengers.”
“La Compagnie is reinventing the business-class experience, giving passengers uncompromised service quality and high-end perks, which include having Viasat’s best-in-class Wi-Fi service onboard,” said Don Buchman, vice-president and general manager, Commercial Aviation at Viasat. “Given La Compagnie’s primary flight routes over the Atlantic, they will use our latest satellite system, ViaSat-2, giving passengers an optimal connectivity experience – with industry-best speeds, performance and reliability – gate-to-gate.”
