New Delhi: Air India is planning to offer free Wi-Fi on board its Airbus A-320 planes for its domestic travellers, as per a news paper report.
“Once materialised, Air India will be the first airline to offer free Wi-Fi,” a report in the Times of India said on Tuesday.
However, the national carrier did not specify the data limit and speed, the paper said.
Air India's free connection is likely to start with a basic pack that will allow receiving and sending mails and checking WhatsApp. Eventually, AI might increase the data pack to broader limits which would be paid. This will be done based on the customer feed back, the paper further added.
"We are working on having Wi-Fi on our planes. We have issued expression of interest and will take the aircraft manufacturer's nod to install Wi-Fi equipment. Though giving an exact date is difficult, we are aiming to start this by June or July," AI chief Ashwani Lohani told the TOI.
