British Airways has confirmed that it plans to offer both short-haul and long-haul connectivity across its fleet.

IAG, the carrier’s owner, said at an investor day this week that it is “evaluating Wi-Fi retrofit for over 100 existing [long-haul] aircraft”¬†while short-haul will look at “extending Inmarsat’s Air-to-Ground (AtG) offer to over 300 aircraft”.

In addition, it is “setting aggressive targets” for the installation with 90 per cent of long-haul aircraft to have Wi-Fi fitted by early 2019 and the first in-service short-haul AtG aircraft planned for 2017.
