Over 23,000 commercial aircraft will offer connectivity to their passengers by 2027, up from 7,400 aircraft in 2017. In January 2018, around 90 airlines had either installed or committed to install in-flight connectivity (IFC) solutions. Offering connectivity was first seen as a differentiating factor, however as more and more airlines provide connectivity, offering in-flight wifi starts to  become a must-have in order to keep a competitive positioning in the extremely challenging airline market.

Our research confirms that installations will accelerate and that innovation will largely improve the in-flight experience. New generation satellite systems and air-to-ground networks will dramatically increase available bandwidth for aero customers. The IFEC industry is highly competitive and this competition brings positive fallout from a passenger's standpoint: The cost of MB is continuously decreasing and customized value-added services allow an even better customer experience.

In conjunction with this research report, Euroconsult is also publishing for the first time a Database of Connected Aircraft which will include a quarterly database update over a year-long subscription period. The Database of Connected Aircraft provides a list of more than 20,000 commercial aircraft, including information for every commercial aircraft currently flying, enabling users to determine whether specific aircraft provide in-flight connectivity and the corresponding connectivity solution. The database allows users to seel the evolution of connected aircraft on a monthly basis based upon the terms of contracts when the information is made available. The database may be procured in conjunction with the IFEC report or as a standalone item.
