On Thursday (July 20, 2024), Japan Airlines announced that by July 11th their J-AIR regional subsidiary will complete the installation of inflight internet on all 14 of their Embraer E190s.  In celebration of this milestone, J-AIR will offer unlimited free inflight video streaming from July 12th through September 30, 2024.  The ‘J-Air Unlimited Streaming Service’ is a first for a Japanese airline and will be made possible through a collaboration with Intelsat.  In addition to the existing inflight internet services that enable internet use, e-mail, and social network services via onboard Wi-Fi, guests will now enjoy free unlimited video streaming during the service period.

In Thursday’s announcement, J-AIR’s President, Shunsuke Honda, said,

“I tried watching my favorite movie during a test flight and the 2-hour journey felt incredibly short.  We are looking forward to everyone experiencing this service and are excited about welcoming more passengers aboard J-AIR flights.”

Also commenting on the connectivity collaboration, Intelsat’s Director – Airline Partnerships, APAC, John Hopkins, added

“Technological innovations are delivering higher capacity satellite communications to J-AIR flights.  Intelsat’s reliable satellite connectivity will soon provide smooth use of email, streaming services and social networking for all passengers.  We are confident that J-AIR passengers will be satisfied with this new service.”

The free streaming service will be available on select J-AIR flights between Tokyo-Haneda and Misawa, Akita, Ube, Miyazaki, Osaka (Itami), Sendai and Kagoshima, among others.


Headquartered at Osaka International Airport (Itami), J-AIR is the regional airline for the Japan Airlines (JAL) Group.  The carrier operates regional jet flights throughout Japan, with a network that extends from Memanbetsu in the north, to the Amami Islands in Kagoshima Prefecture in the south, and numerous points in between.
