In-flight Wi-Fi might
be a reality soon in Indian flight carriers, Union Civil Aviation Minister
Ashok Gajapathi Raju has said.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday
at the Dabolim International Airport, the minister also said that the current
aviation laws need to be amended by the Parliament to enable Wi-Fi access
during flights

Raju also said his ministry was
weighing in the pros and cons of enabling Wi-Fi in aeroplanes.

He said there was a demand for the
in-flight Wi-Fi service, but refused to give an assurance as to when the
service would be enabled.

“There is no need to fix a
timeline,” he said.

“We are working on amending
the particular legislation,” he also said, adding that one of the key
reasons why Wi-Fi had not been enabled in-flight in India was because of
security concerns.
