JAL is to begin offering high-speed Internet connection onboard select international flights from the summer of 2012, utilizing technologies from Panasonic Avionics Corporation.

Panasonic's broadband Ku connectivity solution eXConnect, will first be installed on JAL's fleet of Boeing 777s and introduced on routes between Japan and its gateways in Europe as well as in North America.

The airline plans to eventually equip its entire long-range fleet with this function, subsequently expanding this service to the rest of its international network.

 The new inflight service will not only allow customers in every cabin class to check and send emails, stay abreast with updates on their social media network and browse the internet, but also allow fast transfers of large data files just as in a Wi-Fi environment on the ground. Charges will apply for the service, and the cost for usage is expected to be announced closer to the launch.
