Ethiopian Airlanes launches Ka-band on A350s


Ethiopian Airlines has introduced Ka- band onboard wi-fi internet connectivity on its A350 fleet using the latest broadband satellite technology, with plans to expand the service on other airplanes deployed on long-haul flights.

Passengers can access the inflight connectivity service via smartphones, tablets and laptops by purchasing vouchers at Ethiopian Airlines sales outlets including Addis Ababa International Airport’s customer service desk, boarding gates and by asking cabin crew onboard fights. Online sales through credit/debit card and ShebaMiles miles are also options.

Tewolde GebreMariam, group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, stated, “We are glad to introduce inflight internet connectivity with the latest broadband satellite technology, Ka-band, offering our passengers seamless digital experience as they fly Ethiopian.”
