Alaska Airlines’ first aircraft with the Gogo 2Ku in-flight Internet service and Gogo Vision in-flight entertainment was introduced on Wednesday.

The aircraft, an Airbus A321neo, is the first to feature the airline’s new cabin interior which features Recaro seats and cup holders in the first-class cabin, coach seats with memory foam, tablet holders, and ambient mood lighting.

Gogo’s 2Ku system offers speeds of a minimum of 70 Mbps to the aircraft, seven times faster than Gogo’s fastest air-to-ground network. It uses two Ku-band connections to send and receive data between the plane and an orbiting satellite.

The 2Ku service provides gate-to-gate connectivity and also provides service over the ocean on flights to and from Hawaii.
