Virgin America just made the skies a bit more entertaining with the introduction of in-flight access to Spotify and curated content from the New York Times. Virgin passengers will have access to Spotify’s complete library during the flight via the airline’s ViaSat in-flight Wi-Fi system. Additionally, there will also be access to a variety of curated content from the New York Times.
Don’t get too excited though — Virgin’s ViaSat service is only available on two aircraft right now, though the airline will be adding more this year as it receives its new A320s, which are outfitted with the latest Wi-Fi tech. To access these new services on ViaSat-equipped planes, simply connect to the wireless network during your flight.
Virgin America also announced earlier this fall that it would support in-flight Netflix streaming using personal devices, such as laptops and tablets. Virgin is expected to receive all of its new A320s by mid-2016, so you can expect these services to become a bit more common within the carrier’s fleet over the next year or so.
