Air China has its Airbus fleet fitted with in-flight Wi-Fi system by Ameco Beijing. The company has recently returned its second modified aircraft to the customer on schedule. Being authorized by CAAC and EASA, Ameco now is capable of in-flight Wi-Fi installation on Air China fleet with the key technique in Electromagnetic Interference/Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMI/EMC) test. With the in-flight Wi-Fi system, passengers can use their own portable electronic devices, such as laptop computers and personal digital assistants, during flight. It enables internet access, mail, Wi-Fi chat as well as the cabin-wide HD video streaming in wide-body aircraft for more than 300 passengers. Ameco has started to provide the in-flight Wi-Fi installation on Air China’s A330-200 wide-body fleet as a complete upgrade of the current system. Besides, modification on Air China’s Boeing 777 fleet will start soon in early 2014.
