Boingo Wireless has announced a roaming agreement with Connexion by Boeing to enable Boingo Roaming System subscribers to connect to the Connexion by Boeing high-speed, mobile Internet service in flight.

Under the agreement, Boingo subscribers on commercial airliners will be able to wirelessly access the Internet in flight, in addition to roaming on any of the more than 13,000 hot spots worldwide that are part of the Boingo Roaming System.

Once the two networks are integrated, the, Boingo Roaming System service will be offered on aircraft equipped with the Connexion by Boeing service. Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), Japan Airlines, and ANA are currently offering the service to their passengers. Singapore Airlines, China Airlines, Korean Air and Asiana have also indicated their plans to begin offering the service to their passengers later this year. Subscribers on these flights will be the world's first airborne passengers to enjoy the benefits of Boingo's wireless in-flight roaming.

Connexion by Boeing is a mobile information services provider that makes Internet access available during flight. Passengers aboard an equipped aircraft have the real-time ability to connect to their corporate networks, send and receive emails with attachments, access corporate business applications and surf the worldwide web while airborne.

Under Boingo's Platform Services Program, service providers can offer the complete Boingo network, including the Connexion by Boeing connectivity service, to their subscribers. In addition to network access, the Platform Services Program provides service providers with customized client software and a full suite of back-office billing, roaming, mediation and clearinghouse services to allow them to deploy their own cost-effective Wi-Fi service within 90 days. Currently announced Platform Services Partners include Earthlink, Fiberlink, Infonet Services Corp., MCI and Telecom Italia.
