[Avionics Today March 5, 2014] Israeli airline EL AL will be the European launch customer for ViaSat’s Exede in-flight connectivity service. 
The two companies are currently working toward certification and installation of the Exede terminals on EL AL aircraft, targeting a launch of the service in 2015. ViaSat plans to deploy the service on EL AL Boeing 737s flying from Tel Aviv to European destinations. 

“As we introduce Exede in-flight service outside North America, we expect the same enthusiastic response we’ve seen since our launch in the U.S.,” said Mark Dankberg chairman and CEO of ViaSat.
