Passengers booking air tickets on Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can now look forward to Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity on board some of the select flights.
Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines recently introduced Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity on select flights. Both the carriers have adopted the service on a trial basis, which will continue throughout the rest of 2013.
The service will be on trial initially on two Boeing 777-300 aircrafts. Air France will be operating one Boeing 777-300 aircraft between Paris’ Charles De Gaulle International Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The other Boeing aircraft would be operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines between Amsterdam and Panama.
Media reports said that the two aircrafts on which Wi-Fi and Mobile connectivity service are on trial would operate on several long-haul destinations. This is being done to assess the efficacy of the service for its applicability in future on flights to various destinations worldwide.
The passengers booking flights on both the carriers would be required to pay a fee for the use of the Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity service.
