Thai Airways, the flag carrier of Thailand, has been working on plans to provide in-flight WiFi internet connectivity in its aircraft.
The airline is preparing to apply for the license to operate WiFi internet services as well as in-flight mobile services with NBTC, the Thai national telecom regulator, according to a September 2013 article in The Bangkok Post.
The airline will choose either OnAir of Switzerland or Britain’s AeroMobile Communications as its international WiFi network service provider.
OnAir, which is allied with Airbus, offers connectivity services in more than 50 countries and through 16 airlines flying over 5 continents.
Aeromobile, allied with Boeing, offers technology that enables airline passengers to use their mobile phones for voice calls and texting as well as mobile data while flying.
