Japan Airlines says it will expand its in-flight Internet connection service to flights between Tokyo and New York (JL006/005) from 10 May 2005; this will be the world’s first service on a transpacific flight according to the company. Provided by Connexion by Boeing Inc. (CBB) — a business unit of Boeing — the “JAL Inflight Internet Service” enables passengers to use their own wireless LAN-compatible personal computers to enjoy real-time Internet access during flight. Initially the service will be available on alternate days but towards the end of June it will be available daily. JAL’s Tokyo-New York route is popular with business travelers, who represent a high percentage of total passengers.
To commemorate the opening of the Tokyo-New York service, JAL will offer customers a US$10.00 discount for the service, up to 15 July 2005. Pamphlets distributed in-flight contain details on how to apply for the discount.
On 12 November 2003, JAL was the first Asian airline to reach an agreement with CBB to introduce in-flight Internet service and the airline introduced it on the Tokyo-London route on 9 December 2004. JAL will continue to expand its in-flight Internet connection service on Japan-Europe and Japan-North America routes. Full story here.
