According to the Managing Director of Pakistan International Airlines, Mr. Junaid Yunus, the National Airlines has decided to make arrangements of in-flight WiFi Internet and mobile phone services for long international routes. Initially only nine Boeing 777s that fly to Europe, US and Canada will be embedded with this technology.

Various service providers have already contacted the national carrier as part of their proposals to provide the above mentioned in-flight technology. Majority cellular operators in Pakistan already have the potential to provide in-flight roaming services by collaborating with partner networks.

There is still no time frame given for the commencement of these added value services on the national airlines of the country.
