Connexion by Boeing and NTT DoCoMo to Launch In-flight Roaming
Posted: 06-Oct-2004 [Source: Connexion]

[DoCoMo Mzone(tm) W-LAN subscribers will be able to access in-flight Internet roaming available on select Lufthansa flights beginning October 22.]

Tokyo and Seattle -- Connexion by Boeing, a business unit of The Boeing Company, and NTT DoCoMo, Japan's leading mobile communications company, today announced the launch of a roaming service to enable users of NTT DoCoMo's popular Mzone(tm) wireless LAN service to connect to the Connexion by Boeing(sm) high-speed Internet service in flight, beginning Oct. 22.

NTT DoCoMo's Mzone users will enjoy a simple, seamless solution for accessing the full richness of the Internet when in flight, simply by accessing the Connexion by Boeing homepage and entering their Mzone username and password. Billing for the service will be added to users' existing Mzone bills.

The service fee will be a flat rate that varies according to the length of the flight: less than three hours -- 1,900 yen ($17 USD); three to less than six hours -- 2,500 yen ($23 USD); or more than six hours -- 3,700 yen ($30 USD).

The roaming service will immediately be available on Lufthansa flights LH715-714 (Narita/Munich), LH452-453 (Munich/Los Angeles), LH458-459 (Munich/San Francisco; from Sep. 27 to Oct. 31, scheduled to resume from Dec.14), LH602-603 (Munich/Tehran; scheduled from Oct. 17), scheduled from Oct. 17; LH428-429 (Munich/Charlotte; scheduled from Oct. 31), LH464-465 (Munich/Miami; scheduled from Dec.14 on Mondays and Wednesdays), and LH446-447 (Frankfurt/Denver; scheduled from Dec. 1), all costing 3,700 yen per flight. Additional availability will occur on ANA flight NH919-920 (Narita/Shanghai; scheduled from Nov. 15) for 2,500 yen per flight, Japan Airlines flight between Narita and London (scheduled from December) for 3,700 yen per flight and Scandinavian Airlines flight between Copenhagen and Seattle (scheduled from December) for 3,700 yen per flight. The specific route availability is subject to change and users are advised to contact the airline companies for details. Mzone customers will be the world's first airborne passengers to receive integrated billing for high-speed Internet access while flying as the result of a roaming service agreement between a wireless LAN service and Connexion by Boeing. The roaming service launch is based on a memorandum of understanding that was originally signed in April this year.
