Telecom Commission said that DoT and the civil aviation ministry officials will meet within 10 days to discuss "operational details" of in-flight connectivity. The date for the meeting is yet to be finalised. The meeting would also be attended by telecom companies, airlines, and in-flight connectivity providers, Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan told reporters.
Highlighting the achievements of the government in the last four years, Sundararajan was speaking on the sidelines of a Communications Ministry conference.
"The discussions on the operational model will entail questions like who will be investing in infrastructure, who will be providing the services. There is no standard model...We will have to see what is suitable in the Indian context," Sundararajan said.
Telecom Commission - the highest policy-making body of Department of Telecom (DoT) - on May 1 had cleared a proposal for allowing wider in-flight connectivity that is now available in most of the developed markets.
