Nearly 800 Planes Will Feature In-Flight Broadband by the End of 2009, Generating $47 Million Worldwide Passenger Revenue, Says In-Stat

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The number of broadband enabled airplanes will increase from 25 in 2008 to 800 in 2009, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). As a result, broadband hungry airline passengers will generate over $47 million worldwide in 2009. The in-flight broadband market is still emerging and will grow well beyond $1 billion annually by 2012.

“The market is clearly gaining momentum, with deployments escalating in number,” says Daryl Schoolar, In-Stat analyst. “However, in-flight broadband faces challenges, however, by the struggling economy and competing non-traditional IFE solutions.”

Live broadcast video is also poised for significant growth in 2009. While this service is more established than in-flight broadband, usage revenues are still anticipated to nearly double in 2009 and continue to grow strongly through 2013.

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • In-flight broadband equipment revenue will nearly double between 2009 and 2013.
