Additionally the 787 aircraft will come with the system eX3 IFE to offer the passenger a unique inflight entertainment experience.

The aircraft that offer Wi-Fi on-board are two Airbus A330-200 and one A330-300, it is estimated that from the month of July the entire long haul fleet with have Wi-Fi service on board.

The Wi-Fi service will be activated, above 10.000 meters, when the seat belt light is switched off, therefore it is not available during take-off and landing. From then on, passengers wishing to connect must keep the airplane mode activated on the mobile device in order to connect to the Wi-Fi “Ontheair” and after opening a browser select that rate most suits their needs.

Air Europa has selected three rates to choose from 7€ for 15 Mb; a popular rate of 13€ for 30 Mb that permits a longer navigating time or a premium rate of 20€ which permits 50 Mb to navigate.
