Jet Blue recently announced that they will offer passengers free Amazon Prime video content, using the airline’s “Fly Fi” in-flight Wi-Fi service. Jet Blue introduced Fly Fi back in 2013; the service provides users with 12Mbps Internet connections for free, with the caveat of allowing no video or file transfers. Fly Fi is currently installed on Jet Blue’s Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, although the airline plans to have the service available on its entire fleet by the end of 2016.
In order for flyers to take advantage of the offer, they must be Amazon Prime members ($99 annually). Amazon on Jet Blue has been integrated into “The Hub,” Jet Blue’s in-flight entertainment portal that users can access on their devices for free. “We’re excited to bring our unlimited on-demand entertainment to JetBlue and offer it over a fast and free internet, just in time for the busiest travel season of the year,” said Michael Paull, Vice President of Digital Video at Amazon.
