ANA to equip long-haul fleet with WiFi

ANA has announced plans to offer in-flight internet on a number of its planes flying international routes starting in Summer 2013. The plan will see the 777-30ER and 767-300ER fleets as the first to be fitted with the service. OnAir, the leading provider of satellite-based connectivity will be the platform of choice for ANA.

Nice to see the service coming, though somewhat surprising that the 787 Dreamliner isn’t part of the initial plans. Then again, with the slow delivery pace it might just be that the company doesn’t want to take one out of service for the necessary fitting and approval process.

Always good to see connectivity options growing in the skies.
