Wait for in-flight Net connectivity gets longer

New Delhi: Surfing the Internet on jetliners cruising 30,000 feet above the earth may not become a reality in the country soon.

The issuing of draft rules by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in August for the use of WiFi on portable electronic devices on flights aroused hopes that the facility Indian flyers had been waiting for would be extended soon.

As on date, authorisation under the Flight Maritime Connectivity Rules, 2018, has been granted to 13 companies. But the government has no plan to allow “in-flight connectivity” immediately. Sanjay Dhotre, MoS, Communications, Education, Electronics & IT, has been quoted saying that no timeline has been set by the government for allowing in-flight net connectivity.
