Travelling on an airplane has changed tremendously in the recent years and more significance is given to the comfort factor. The year 2017 is believed to be a potential year for the aviation industry and many big changes are expected to happen.

One such improvement is that you can now access the internet, send messages, tweet and also be present on the social media while being on your flight. Alaska Airlines and JetBlue are offering free internet to their passengers which will certainly help to pass the long hours in the flight more easily. This move will be a relief for those passengers who are always online and cannot bear to be disconnected from the virtual world.

JetBlue airlines are presenting the Fly-Fi service which is touted to be the first ‘free high-speed Wi-Fi at every seat’. This service is sponsored by Amazon and will feature shows from Amazon Video, shopping and also a variety of messenger platforms.

Many airlines like the Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines charge a fee for the passengers to access the internet. Norwegian, a long-haul airline provides cost-free Wi-Fi, but this service is limited only to the flights within Europe and between the USA and the Caribbean.

Granting internet access on the flights will have a booming impact on the airline business and people will definitely prefer flights with Wi-Fi over others.
