According to Media Solutions firm Volv; All airlines will ultimately make the in-cab wireless internet connection free for passengers.
Volv, in the last blog post; People are now looking at wireless Internet connectivity as a “human right”, and because of the modern dependency on technology, they will ultimately claim Wi-Fi as being included in the price of the ticket at an altitude of 30,000 feet.
While British Airways has announced that it will offer wireless Internet connectivity throughout the fleet, Companies may have to give up “risk of lagging behind” and “struggle to stay” if Wi-Fi claims in the air are unavailable.
According to the blog; “Based on the development of other in-cab entertainment forms, Wi-Fi will eventually become available to everyone; But now the current trend is to offer this option with economy-class low-speed or per-user payment options, giving priority to the first and commercial class.
“While technology is becoming more widespread, airlines will likely be willing to provide free wireless networking for everyone by costing over the ticket with additional maintenance costs.
While it seems like a senseless luxury for some now, it is suggested that this is not always the case when air travel history and, of course, wireless networking technology is taken into consideration. Those who can not provide this technology or those who do not want to provide this technology will strive to stay connected with the sector and will give priority to comfort and convenience in customer experience.”
Blog also; Said that airline companies, which offer a lower price than the market, are using the wireless network connection to provide more value.
Volv also predicts that you will be in the air on your personal devices. With Wi-fi, unfamiliar flight displays can be removed and this situation can be used in favor of passengers, with the use of handheld devices, creating space for more seats and legroom and providing comfort and space for passengers.
According to the blog; “Airline companies that lift back-seat displays from their planes can greatly reduce aircraft weight, fuel and cost savings. Removing these screens means there will be more leg room for the passenger and there will not be any power units that cause the seat to jam.
Volv also mentioned obstacles to ensuring cheap Wi-fi for everyone; The problem is not related to linking; But there are different legal arrangements for more than one country. For example; When flying over China, passengers will lose their connection when they want to connect to Google.
Of course, the latest laptops and other big device bans introduced by some countries, such as the United Kingdom and the United States, are also frustrating.
According to the blog; “These new security measures have restricted the technology allowed on flights. Airlines should consider the possibility that these bans may be extended for passengers who do not use their devices by paying for wireless internets on aircraft.”
