Spirit Airlines is now offering its customers FlytLIVE, Thales’ state-of-the-art high-performance connectivity solution.
The carrier’s A320s and A321s are currently flying with Thales’ FlytLIVE high-speed connectivity and additional Spirit aircraft will also be equipped with the solution, Thales says.
FlytLIVE, which uses SES and Hughes next-generation aviation satellite network and technology, delivers advanced Ka-band high-throughput connectivity solution. The SES satellite manufactured by Thales Alenia Space is equipped with close to 200 beams of mixed size for more flexible allocation of capacity over high-traffic airline routes to deliver seamless connectivity and outstanding performance.
Matt Klein, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Spirit Airlines said: “This is a real ground-breaking moment in the industry as Spirit adds in-flight amenities and product options that have previously not been available on ultra-low fare carriers. We’re continuing to deliver the best value in the sky by providing options that are important to our guests, like our high-speed Wi-Fi service, while keeping our focus on affordable fares to provide our Guests with More Go.”
TK Kallenbach, CEO of Thales InFlyt Experience commented: “At Thales, we are proud to partner with Spirit Airlines in their mission to enhance the guest experience and are truly excited to have 100% of their A320 & A321 fleet equipped with FlytLIVE. The system’s reliability and performance is getting rave reviews from Spirit’s passengers who can now stream to their heart’s content.”
