Japan Airlines (JAL) announced that it will install in-flight internet service on select Japan-domestic flights.
JAL will be the first Japanese carrier ever to provide in-flight Internet service (fee based) on domestic flights from summer 2014.
The new service will utilize Gogo‘s Ku-satellite connectivity technology.
The domestic service enhancement is in addition to the in-flight internet service currently available on JAL’s international flights, which aims to provide customers with a comfortable and convenient travel experience.
On JAL domestic flights, passengers will be able to access the Internet and send/receive e-mails via Wi-Fi enabled personal terminals with a sense of security of being connected to the ground during the flight.
The current plan is to install the service on 77 aircraft, including:
- Boeing 777－200/300
- Boeing 767－300/300ER
- Boeing 737－800
Details of JAL’s latest services including the new seats and new in-flight internet service will be provided at the end of January 2014.
