In-Flight Wi-Fi Will Grow 600 Percent by 2015, According to Study

As more and more passengers gain access to smart phones and tablets, the market for in-flight Wi-Fi is about to explode.

 

Once seen as an added commodity, in-flight Internet access is becoming a competitive requirement for most airlines.

 

A new study from research firm In-Stat News suggests that in-flight Wi-Fi will grow 600 percent by 2015.

 

According to the numbers, airline Wi-Fi revenue will grow from $225 million in 2011 to nearly $1.5 billion by 2015.

 

The report also notes that simply providing Wi-Fi connectivity won’t be enough to keep airlines competitive in the tech market. As connection becomes the industry norm, the study says consumer demand will shift to extra features and services.
