Setting the Inflight Connectivity Context: Millennials & Generation Z
The world’s networks of commercial airline routes – carrying increasing numbers of passengers, a constantly growing proportion of which are ‘Millennials’ and ‘Generation Z’ – are evolving. No longer will they be only a mode of transportation between domestic or international physical/geographical hubs, but also social networks in the sky – connecting the passenger (carrying two or even three wireless devices) to the home, to the office, to the circle of friends, to the YouTube ecosphere, etc. – and comprising aircraft that will increasingly become hubs in the communications sense of the word, using the technologies of fixed (FSS: Ku-band, Ka-band) and mobile (MSS: L-band) satellite systems and air-to-ground (ATG) networks. Whilst flight arrivals may always be subject to delays, widespread inflight connectivity (IFC) has most definitely arrived, or is at least undercarriage down, on final approach.
