Indian aviation soon might allow airlines to provide WiFi to the customers. After many years, India might catch up to the global counterparts to provide Internet to all of its customers.

Gogo Inc, a $700-million US-based inflight connectivity provider, will open an engineering and software development center in Chennai. It plans to provide its service to various airlines in India after the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) last week issued recommendations to allow both telephony and Internet services on domestic flights.

Globally, Gogo has 19 commercial airline partners and provides services and solutions to over 3,000 commercial aircraft and nearly 4,200 business aircraft. It started offering broadband connectivity using nearly 250 cell towers in air routes over 48 states in the US and Canada. Globally, Delta Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Australia and Japan Airlines use Gogo’s services.

I expect local ISP to bid for different airlines. This would be another initiative to make a journey for Indian travelers pleasurable after Jet Airways initiated JetScreen for its passengers. Providing full-scale Wi-Fi would be a step in a similar direction.

The only part that scares me is watching some of the loud consumers might start making those VOIP and Whatsapp call on the flight disturbing everyone around them. We have many of those inconsiderate customers on air.
