From this month (November 2005), customers flying to New York via Frankfurt can access high speed internet. Connexion by Boeing, an inflight wireless broadband service that provides customers in all three classes with real-time, high-speed and secure internet connectivity was first offered by Singapore Airlines in March 2005, and by June was available on all services between Singapore and London. In that same month, Singapore Airlines became the first airline in the world to introduce live global TV on international flights using the same system.
Through the Connexion by Boeing facility, customers of Singapore Airlines with wireless-enabled laptops can send and receive emails, connect real-time with their corporate virtual private network or watch BBC World, EuroNews, Eurosportnews and CNBC TV channels live from their laptops.
Upon paying US$29.95, passengers travelling on multi-sector flights e.g. Singapore-Frankfurt-New York aboard Singapore Airlines will only need to pay once to gain unlimited access to inflight internet throughout the flight. There is no extra charge for access to Live Global TV once Connexion by Boeing connection is established.Email Post to a Friend
