Netflix is hoping to take its streaming services 30,000 feet up by partnering with airline carriers. The announcement was made on Monday at the 2017 APEX Expo, per Variety, as a deal would find the streaming giant sharing its low-bandwidth mobile streaming technology to improve in-flight WiFi speeds.

Subsequently, passengers would be allowed to access Netflix from personal devices upon taking advantage of free or low-cost WiFi. Variety also discloses that Netflix's bandwidth-efficient mobile technology would save airlines 75 percent on bandwidth costs.

As it stands, you can currently download programs on Netflix before you board your flight, then stream them accordingly for any trips sans WiFi.

Netflix has already worked with the likes of Aeromexico, Qantas and Virgin Australia in the past, as it will be interesting to see who is onboard for this new airline carrier option going forward.
