The Seamless Air Alliance, with the support of its members GlobalReach Technology, Sprint and Boingo, has demonstrated secure and seamless connection to high-performance in-flight Wi-Fi using Hotspot 2.0 Wi-Fi services, during the opening day of the this year’s Paris Air Show.
“This demonstration is a big step for the Alliance in showcasing the progress that we have made in recent months. We want to empower airlines with more control over the connectivity experience delivered to their passengers. Open specifications will drive down the cost and complexity for airlines and result in a better experience for billions of passengers across the globe,” said Jack Mandala, CEO of Seamless Air Alliance.
Mark Carter, chief product officer at GlobalReach Technology said: “Wi-Fi is crucial for today’s travellers. Airline passengers want to stay connected in the air for work, entertainment and communications, making high-performance in-flight Wi-Fi essential. To differentiate both their ground and in-flight experience, improve satisfaction ratings and passenger loyalty, Hotspot 2.0 provides passengers with secure, frictionless connectivity across multiple devices and planes.”
