Did you know that international carriers have to switch off Wi-Fi when they enter Indian airspace since regulations don’t permit for anyone to be connected flying over India?
India’s relationship with in-flight Wi-Fi has been a little complicated. But you’ll be happy to know that a few days back, the Department of Telecom had notified the final rules for in-flight connectivity.
Some of the airlines that have shown interest responding to the matter include: SpiceJet, Vistara, Jet Airways, Air India, IndiGo and GoAir.
Where, SpiceJet seems to be getting ready to be the first Indian airline to offer inflight-connectivity, Air India, for now, has decided to offer Wi-Fi only on their Airbus A320 fleet.
Pricing: SpiceJet and Air India, both have decided to initially provide free Wi-Fi to passengers.
