Internet on the Plane

Thanks to the decision taken by considering the strong demand of passengers, benefitting from internet services, sending electronic mail, visiting social networks and sending message will be easier during the flight.

The Commission allowed the use of 3G and 4G technologies only at height above 3 thousand meters. Airlines will determine the services which will be provided to the passengers through these technologies. According to the research carried out by the companies of the related sector, during the flight passengers prefer sending message and electronic mail rather than talking on the phone.

Airlines intending to offer these services to their passengers will have to set up advanced mobile communication systems on their aircrafts or update their current systems.

In the statement made by the Commission it has been announced that 3G and 4G connections will be made through satellite and limitation on the power will also be in question.
