TRAI will not regulate tariff for in-flight connectivity services

May 28, 2018

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will not regulate tariff for in-flight connectivity services.

According to mobile operators and industry experts, the business case for local operators wasn’t strong due to dependence on intermediaries and low revenue levels compared to the investment required. This can be mainly attributed to short domestic travel times.

As per the rules, multinational telecom operators have to act as intermediaries between the airline and the local carrier during the provision of in-flight connectivity services.

According to the TRAI, although it will not regulate tariff levels, it will be kept under forbearance.  Further, the architecture for offering in-flight connectivity services was a business decision between local and multinational carriers.

Recently, the government approved the move to provide in-flight connectivity services to travellers once the aircraft achieves a height of 3,000 metres.
