Internet access coming on a flight near you soon

December 8, 2007

The concept of internet access on airplanes is gaining momentum fast. In the latest announcement, JetBlue Airways Corp. have announced they will be allowing basic email and messaging access through Yahoo Inc. from next week.

They’ll allow two models of Blackberry to use WiFi as well so their owners can access work email and their own services.

It’s a great step in the right direction. I can’t wait to be able to go on a business trip and actually be productive on the flight.

The future could open up all sorts of possibilities for the online travel market. Any customer who’s booked with you could get access to your content and services while on their way to a holiday they booked on your website. Lot’s of opportunities for value added services and increasing customer engagement!
