Panasonic makes a statement on the FCC’s consideration to adopt new rules on the use of mobile phone devices in flight

Panasonic Avionics Corporation today welcomed the news that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will consider adopting rules to enable in-flight wireless mobile phone connectivity in the United States.

“We look forward to the Commission’s consideration of this important step and the participation of all stakeholders in the upcoming rulemaking,” said Chris Lundquist, Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development at Panasonic.   “Consistent with continued air safety and airline operations, it would be good news for passengers to have the freedom to choose from available in-flight connectivity offerings.  Whether they use onboard Wi-Fi or their own mobile devices, passengers should be able to remain connected. We applaud the timely response from the Commission Commission’s responding so promptly to the ever-growing consumer demand for constant, uninterrupted connectivity.”

Panasonic’s Global Communications Services (GCS) includes both Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity, and we are thrilled that U.S. airlines and foreign airlines operating in U.S. airspace will have access to the full range of global communications services options for their passengers and crew.”
