Q3 Review: Global Inflight Connectivity

Compared to the first half of 2016, the third quarter saw a slowing of airlines launching new connectivity service, however we are happy to report that airlines already offering inflight connectivity continued to expand their routes as well as types of services available onboard.q3-review-rio-tweet

It was exciting for us to see the number of airlines which offered live sports in-flight so their passengers could enjoy the Rio Olympics.  The tweets posted while onboard were great!

New Launches: No new launches to report for Q3; so we’re still tracking the number of airlines around the world offering connectivity services at 64. We are, however, hoping for some new airlines to launch service in Q4 and will provide updates to our list as they happen.

 

New Routes:

  • On July 13th, United Airlines launched their San Francisco (SFO) to Hangzhou (HGH) route on one of the world’s most advanced passenger aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. This 13 hour flight offers inflight Wi-Fi.
  • Alitalia returned to China on July 18th with the re-launch of their Rome (FCO) to Beijing (PEK) route. Passengers can use Wi-Fi connectivity for phone calls, internet, e-mail, and more.
  • Singapore Airlines added Johannesburg and Düsseldorf to their A350 offering on June 27th and July 21st. Wi-Fi and mobile phone services are available on board.q3-review-ein-tweet
  • Cathay Pacific Airways became the only airline to offer non-stop flights between London Gatwick Airport and Hong Kong. The A350-900 offers live TV and Wi-Fi on board.
  • On September 1st, Aer Lingus launched their Dublin (DUB) to Newark (EWR) A330 route.

Other Updates:

  • Three airlines expanded their inflight entertainment offerings by adding live television service.
    • AeroMexico re-launched live TV on their Boeing 787s. Channels include Sport 24 and CNN International.
    • Virgin Atlantic also added live TV on their 787s. Passengers can enjoy Sport 24, BBC News, and CNN International.
    • WestJet added Sport 24 and Sport 24 Extra to their already existing live TV service.
  • Thai Airways welcomed their first Airbus A350 XWB in Bangkok in late August. In Mid-October, the A350 will begin its international service flying BKK > MEL with Wi-Fi available onboard.
  • Hockey fans were excited to learn that live TV channel Sport 24 added the World Cup of Hockey and NHL to their coverage.
  • iPass customers will be happy to learn that they have partnered with United Airlines to allow you Wi-Fi access using your account. This is schedule to start in Q4 of this year and expand to United’s fleet of more the 700 aircraft.

As we start the last quarter of 2016 we’ll continue to track the exciting expansion of the availability for passengers to stay connected in-flight as they travel around the world. Be sure to check back frequently, we’ll keep you updated on all the news for global inflight connectivity!

Finally, thanks to our online community of supporters, early in Q3 we reached the milestone of 300,000 Facebook likes.  We couldn’t do it without you!
