In 2019, China's civil aviation carried more than 660 million passengers annually. Based on an average of 2.5 hours per person, there were nearly 1.65 billion hours of in-flight time in 2019, and most of them were high-end users. Combined with the government's favorable policies, 91% of airlines are focusing on providing in-flight wireless network services to passengers. Currently, there are 506 aircrafts from 19 airlines offered 8.55 million passenger cabin WIFI services, accounting for about 13.7% of China's civil aviation carriers.
In recent years, the development of IFEC has attracted much attention. CAAC has issued policy to open the use of mobile phones, and the executive meeting of the State Council called for speeding up the "promotion of in-flight internet business". Especially in the post-epidemic era, airlines and passengers have more urgent needs for in-flight internet. Drived by both policy and market, the development of IFEC has entered a fast lane. In the in-flight Internet industry map, the choice of interconnection technology path is very important. With the arrival of the 5G era, China's in-flight connectivity infrastructure is being carried out like a raging fire. Both satellite internet and ATG are speeding up to build a broadband Internet that can solve the three-dimensional coverage and meet the demand of aircraft to access the Internet in the air. In the long run, the diversified development of satellite programs and 5G ATG ground base station programs will definitely be the development trend of in-flight internet in the future.
