The government has paved the way for passengers of air travel and sea voyage to use internet and make calls with their mobile phones in Indian airspace by notifying the Indian Flight and Maritime Connectivity Rules (IFMC), 2018.
In a notification dated December 14, the government said Indian and foreign airlines and shipping companies operating in the country can provide in-flight and maritime voice and data services in partnership with a valid Indian telecom licence holder.




The services will be activated once the aircraft attains a minimum height of 3,000 metres in Indian airspace to avoid interference with terrestrial mobile networks, the rules state. The IFMC licences will be granted against an annual fee of Re 1 for a period of 10 years and the permit holder will have to pay licence fees and spectrum charges based on revenue earned from providing services.




However, airlines, shipping companies and service providers will decide how much they want to charge the customer. It is also up to them whether they want to offer both internet and calling services or limit themselves to Wi-Fi services only. Most airlines globally offer only Wi-Fi on board as allowing mobile calls could be too much of a nuisance for fellow travellers.




The notification said the rules will come into effect on the date of their publication in the Official Gazette. The development helps India, one of the fastest growing aviation markets and the second largest smartphone market, join a long list of countries like the US, UK, Canada and China that have been offering the services for a couple of years now.




American in-flight internet services provider Gogo has already committed to enter India by setting up a functional centre in Chennai. The notification said IFMC can be provided using telecom networks on ground as well as using satellites.




The services can be provided by a valid telecom licence holder in India through domestic and foreign satellites having permission of the Department of Space. Telecom minister Manoj Sinha had said on December 5 that his ministry was awaiting the law ministry’s views on in-flight connectivity to notify the rules.




On May 1, the Telecom Commission, the highest policy-making body of Department of Telecom (DoT), had cleared a proposal for allowing wider in-flight connectivity. The proposal said a separate category of telecom operators called IFC service provider’ will be carved out.

Hi All,
Looks like William Rouse has joined MR with an on-market purchase of 50K Shares at $0.935/share. wink.gif

Hi All,From the AGM it seems that WiFi installations are a potentially significant target area for CVM (everyone loves their wifi). wub.gif
For some background, the below (although a bit dated now) is an interesting read.

Hi All,
Unfortunately I didn't attend the AGM, but Boogee graduated.gif on HC has uploaded a recording of the proceedings on YouTube:

The quality isn't fantastic, but it is well worth a listen.

Hi Rosen,
My interpretation, which might be biased, is that it reads as a positive for SMN.

Fuel prices are probably less of an issue now with the recent slide in the oil price, but low oil also makes low cost carriers more competitive (in terms of reduced fares).

An innovation such as CVM that can reduce inspection cost, and increase aircraft utilization rates, will be embraced as a method to improve overall operator margins.

At least that is my (biased) take on it.

Cheers
