TAM Tweaks Their In-Flight WiFi to Include Long-Haul Flights
It’s been some time since we heard about TAM Airlines and their new in-flight technology, but now is a perfect moment to revisit the topic as they’re beginning to expand their travel tech.
While in-flight WiFi is available on certain short-haul trips, the big news is that TAM is now bringing the magic of in-flight accessibility to some of their long-haul flights as well. They’ll be using OnAir to provide all the behind-the-scenes magic, as they start to equip their Boeing 777s along with Airbus A330s and A350s. In total there should be roughly 80 jets when the mechanics, electricians, and engineers finally hang up their wrenches and wire cutters.
Unfortunately, that long flight to São Paulo won’t be all that exciting until sometime in 2012, as right now that’s the target date for when all the networking stuff will be finished. Until then load up the content on your mobile phone or tablet of choice, and will let you know when it’s time to finally log on.
