Posted on 26-Mar-2004 08:07 | Tags Filed under: News



Connexion by Boeing announced pricing details for its high-speed in-flight Internet service scheduled to become commercially available this spring.

There will be two initial pricing plans, which will vary depending on flight length:

  • Flat Rate Pricing Option: (Unlimited access to the Internet) US$29.95 for long-haul flights (more than six hours); US$19.95 for medium-haul flights (between three and six hours); and US$14.95 for flights less than three hours.

  • Metered Pricing Option: 30-minute starter package for US$9.95 with rates of US$0.25 per minute thereafter.

    The company says the pricing is based on customer research conducted individually and in conjunction with airlines in Europe, Asia and the U.S. and is intended to be affordable for all travelers. Connexion by Boeing says this is the only Internet service that offers users a high-speed, real-time experience comparable to the one they currently enjoy at the office or at home, including unrestricted virtual private network (VPN) access to personal and work-related e-mail accounts and intranets, as well as entertainment applications and an in-flight portal for customer service and support.

    Lufthansa will be the first airline to launch the Connexion by Boeing service on commercial flights originating from Germany this spring. Connexion by Boeing also has service agreements with several of the world's leading passenger airlines including Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), Japan Airlines and ANA. Singapore Airlines and China Airlines also have expressed their intent to install the service in subsequent months.
