If your airline of choice is JetBlue, you having some exciting times coming your way. Announced today, Amazon will begin to offer their Prime Instant video service, as well as rentals and downloads, on JetBlue airliners. This partnership will allow Amazon Prime members to stream thousands of movies while on their flight.

Amazon Prime has the added benefit of new release movies and next day programming, as well, meaning more options for passengers. You’ll even be able to stream music, and purchase music and e-books from the Amazon Music and Kindle stores, respectively.

Obviously, this arrangement is beneficial to both parties. Amazon gets their services put in front of thousands of people a day, and JetBlue gets to flex their fast internet, JetBlue Fly-Fi. In addition to that, JetBlue customers will also be able TrueBlue points from shopping in certain categories while using Fly-Fi.

The features from Amazon will be integrated JetBlue’s Fly-Fi hub and will be available on JetBlue’s A321 and A320 aircraft. It will also make its way to JetBlue’s Embraer E190 in 2016.

While both companies are keeping pretty mum about the deal at present time, Jamie Perry, Vice President – Brand & Product Development, did have this to say,

“Amazon’s customer focus aligns perfectly with the experience we have created for our customers, including the best inflight entertainment, free unlimited snacks and beverages, lots of personal space with the most legroom in coach, and wide, comfortable seating. By teaming up with a category-leader like Amazon, we created a unique model where we can offer complimentary broadband internet access.”
