Virgin America airlines has partnered with Netflix to bring the massive catalog of the world’s leading internet TV network to its passengers at 35,000 feet. This is made possible by the recent launch of ViaSat Satellite WiFi on the airline’s 10 new airbus A320 aircraft, which significantly increases in-flight internet speed for passengers. From now through March 2, 2016, passengers can stream movies from Netflix on their phones, tablets, and laptops free-of-charge using their existing account, or by signing up for a free 30-day trial subscription, which will also work on the ground.

“Netflix and Virgin America are both known for their focus on innovation and for shaking up their respective industries,” said Abby Lunardini, Virgin America vice president of brand marketing and communications. “So we’re thrilled to team up to bring the best in technology and entertainment to the skies. These latest generation investments in our WiFi and entertainment platforms allow us to provide the largest breadth of streamed content ever available at 35,000 feet—along with entire seasons of some Netflix favorites via the Red platform.”
