American Airlines Announces High-Speed Wi-Fi For Regional Jets

Two years from now, American Airlines' dual-class regional aircraft will be equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi.

Approximately 500 regional aircraft will be equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi beginning in 2024, according to the airline, which is working to extend its partnership with Intelsat (which acquired the commercial operation of internet provider Gogo).

Since its inception, American Airlines has not yet implemented high-speed Wi-Fi on its regional aircraft, whereas it does so on over 900 mainline aircraft.

The ultimate objective, as stated in the announcement, is to equip over 1,400 aircraft of American Airlines with high-speed Wi-Fi capabilities while they are in flight.

Representing a constellation of Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites and Intelsat's family of geostationary satellites, the Electronically Steered Array (ESA) antennae is distinctive in that it operates in multiple orbits, providing American customers with high-speed, low-latency internet connections

Due to the new Wi-Fi, American can provide regional passengers the same service speeds as mainline flights. Embraer E-175s, Bombardier CR7s, and CR9s are American's regional planes.

American reinforces its commitment to provide customers with a consistent and connected experience on all of its connectivity-equipped flights. passengers can stream, browse, check email, and connect to a VPN.

American Airlines announced the cancellation of all foreign flights from Seattle-Tacoma foreign Airport. Seattle-London service and a much sought-after Heathrow Airport opening are featured.
