Passengers with JetBlue can enjoy unlimited streaming entertainment on Amazon Video.
It is available beginning this week on over 150 JetBlue aircraft equipped with free Fly-Fi broadband Internet.
Amazon Prime members can sign-in or sign-up to instantly access tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes at no additional cost to their membership.
In addition, all JetBlue customers can rent or buy titles in the Amazon Video store, including new release movies and day-after TV programming.
As part of the multiyear year agreement, Amazon on JetBlue has been integrated into The Hub, JetBlue’s entertainment portal that customers access on their personal devices.
The collaboration will involve a broad array of benefits for passengers, including activities in JetBlue’s flagship Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
In 2016, TrueBlue loyalty program members will be able to earn TrueBlue points for their purchases in more than 40 categories on Amazon while inflight or on the ground through other JetBlue marketing channels.
Passengers will also be able to watch Amazon Originals such as the just-launched series The Man in the High Castle as well as the second season of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning series Transparent which airs on December 11, among others, on JetBlue’s seatback televisions.
Fast, Free Internet Part of JetBlue Customer Experience
Fly-Fi uses Ka-band satellite technology to offer a broadband Internet experience similar to what customers have at home, including the ability to stream video and use multiple devices at once.
JetBlue is aiming to complete installation of Fly-Fi in 2016, advancing its effort to become the only U.S. carrier to offer free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet on every aircraft.
JetBlue currently has Fly-Fi installed on its entire fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, and has begun installation on its fleet of Embraer 190s.
