German telecom operator Deutsche Telekom and Inmarsat satellite operator are partnering in the development of the European Aviation Network (EAN). By combining about 300 base stations in each EU country with satellite, the project aims to provide seamless broadband Internet access over land and water in the 28 member states of the EU. So far, European air carriers have had to rely on a fully satellite wireless Internet access system on airplanes across Europe.

In the future, inflight Wi-Fi will also transform the duty free experience allowing travellers to order from their phones and tablets and arrange for items purchased onboard to be delivered to their homes.
