From booking a restaurant, uploading holiday snaps and streaming a movie – British Airways’ onboard Wi-Fi, called High Life Connect, is set to allow customers to stay connected while in the air. 

The first of the airline’s long-haul aircraft, a Boeing 747, will be in service from February 2017 and the first short-haul aircraft, an Airbus A321, will be in the air by the summer of 2017. As part of Plan4’s customer objectives, by 2019, 90 per cent of the airline’s fleet will be Wi-Fi enabled.

The new onboard feature will provide customers with two paid-for Wi-Fi packages, called Simply Connect and Connect Plus, allowing them to either browse or stream content from the internet.

The first aircraft, a 747, began its installation last week in Cardiff.  In a short video GoGo, the Wi-Fi provider shares how the technology will be installed.
