Netflix takes to the air in Mexico with Aeromexico

Monday 20 June 2016 | 15:41 CET | News
Mexican airline company Aeromexico and online video platform Netflix have reached an agreement to offer content on demand during flights, reports El Economista. Access to the platform using smartphones, tablets and mobile devices will be possible thanks to technology from the Gogo platform, based on the 2Ku satellite Wi-Fi system. As part of a trial run lasting until 17 October, the two partners aim to provide free access to Netflix content to both new and existing subscribers flying by Aeromexico throughout Mexico, Central and South America.
