IN-FLIGHT CONNECTIVITY NEEDS GROW
Airline fleet size is expected to double by 2035, with strong and resilient passenger growth of about 4.5%, and approximately 42.7 million in-flight users by 2020. That’s why we strongly believe there is increasing need for in-flight connectivity. At the same time, more than 60% of airline passengers feel that being online while flying is a necessity, not a luxury. We help airlines cater to this passenger requirement!

Deutsche Telekom (DT) has years of experience as one of the only telcos providing in-flight internet service, which is why we recently helped reinvent Wi-Fi in the skies across Europe. Take advantage of DT’s experience and state-of-the-art solutions that are crucial to quick and sustainable growth. We continually innovate to create future-proof features that enable optimized services to simplify and drive monetization.
As the world’s first integrated satellite and complementary LTE-based ground network, the European Aviation Network provides ground-breaking in-flight connectivity across Europe. At Deutsche Telekom, we have proven our ability to build the best ground-based LTE networks. Now, we’ve also done it for the sky, thanks to pioneering work with our partners!
