DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 24, 2018--The "Prospects for In-Flight Entertainment & Connectivity" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

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.

The 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.
