The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), says China has been promoting in-flight network connectivity services in commercial airplanes, a key move in building smart civil aviation industry.

This, it said, was a recently issued tech roadmap,, showing the development path for the new-generation broadband communication technologies in the civil aviation industry.

In the tech roadmap, the CAAC proposed for the first time, the implementation path of a new generation of aviation broadband communication technologies, represented by 5G technology.

The roadmap also offered tech guidance for industry players, aiming to help boost the coordinated development and comprehensive application of broadband-centred aviation communication technologies.

Thanks to constant progress and implementation of modern technologies, the in-flight internet surfing experience has been greatly enhanced from cabin local network initially, to higher speed broadband connectivity.

As of June end, a total of 769 commercial airplanes of 21 Chinese airlines, were equipped with in-flight internet services, up 18 per cent from that in 2020, CAAC data showed.
