The airline is contemplating WiFi installation as it runs some of the longest flights out of India, and most of the global airlines these days are providing their customers with an on-air internet facility. The green signal to the project depends on the costs involved.

Recently, AI chief Ashwani Lohani met Anupam Srivastava of BSNL to discuss the dynamics of the project. However, it is not the first time that AI is trying to install WiFi on its aircraft. Two years ago, it had approached Geneva-based OnAir, which provides both internet and mobile connectivity.

The project could not materialize then as AI was told that India has rules that allow only local service providers to serve the purpose. Besides, the costs involved were too high.
