iPass brings Wi-Fi connectivity to United Airlines passengers

iPass has entered into an agreement with United Airlines to provide customers with Wi-Fi access to the United Airlines Wi-Fi inflight network.

United Airlines passengers who are iPass customers will benefit from a secure, frictionless Wi-Fi experience as they move from the airport terminal to United Airlines aircraft and beyond, utilising a single service.

“In an increasingly connected world, ubiquitous, reliable and secure connectivity has become a requirement for mobile professionals,” said iPass chief Gary Griffiths.

“Inflight is a critical venue for keeping United Airlines and iPass customers connected, and United Airlines is an essential addition to our inflight offering.

“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with United Airlines.”

The rollout is scheduled to commence during the fourth quarter of 2016 and, once complete, will provide eligible customers Wi-Fi access across United’s entire Wi-Fi enabled fleet of more than 700 aircraft, the world’s largest high-speed satellite-enabled fleet.

“United is dedicated to giving our customers the choice to be productive, relaxed or entertained inflight,” said Scott Wilson, United vice president of merchandising and eCommerce.

“Working with iPass enables us to further deliver on that promise for our customers, who will benefit from faster logins and greater ease of connection.”
