Singapore Airlines to offer in-flight high speed internet access.
Posted on 11-Nov-2003 22:50 | Tags Filed under: News



Singapore Airlines selected Connexion by Boeing as its provider for high-speed Internet-based communications on board. Connexion by Boeing mobile information service will be installed on 40 long-haul jetliners with an undisclosed number of options for additional service installations.

Today's announcement in Singapore precedes a definitive service agreement and establishes the framework for the power of in-flight broadband communications to be made available to SIA's customers in 2004. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The technology will enable customers to tap into broadband services that will allow them to surf the Internet, send and receive emails and view up to 12 broadcast television channels. In addition to the data services, Connexion by Boeing will provide singapore Airlines customers with real-time television. Installation of the service is expected to begin by the third quarter of 2004 and launched on commercial services shortly thereafter.
