Wireless World: WiFi in the sky

CHICAGO -- A business traveler on Austrian Airlines boards a flight from Vienna to Warsaw and, once airborne, he opens his IBM ThinkPad notebook computer and connects to the Boeing 767 aircraft's wireless fidelity network. He sends e-mail and surfs the Web, keeping in contact with colleagues throughout Europe.

By early next year, that scenario -- announced just a few weeks ago in Paris -- will become a reality, experts told UPI's Wireless World. Working with a system called Connexion, developed by Boeing's business unit, Austrian Airlines will be among the first European carriers to offer in-flight Internet service to its passengers.
