Airlines are increasingly offering in-flight internet to their customers, so as to let them stay truly connected on the go. Until now, airlines had to undergo considerable hassle to obtain the permission to offer the service but now, FCC has approved a new application process which will make things easier for the airlines.


In-flight internet

Currently, very few airlines offer in-flight internet. Many claim that this is simply the result of the cumbersome procedure that an airline is required to follow so as to obtain permission to offer the service.

The whole process comprises of mainly two things: first, the airline applies for the permission. It then depends on FCC to test out the service, see that it doesn’t interfere with the plane’s critical functions or the pilot’s navigational controls.

Once these things are tested out, FCC gives the nod for an airline to go ahead. Currently, the second part, that of testing out the safety of the service, takes quite some time. Thankfully, FCC is cognizant of this and has now decided to cut that time in half.

The Federal Aviation Administration has recently been considering the use of gadgets in-flight. These involve ereaders an the like. Naturally, users would want to have in-flight internet to make use of them and that’s why, many airlines have been lining up to be among the first to offer wi-fi access during flights. Apparently, it is this popular demand that has persuaded FCC to make things easier for the airlines.
