According to the air traffic regulations in India, in-flight internet services in Indian airspace must be provided by an Indian telecommunications service provider for security reasons.

The only Indian airline that offers in-flight internet services is Vistara. It has partnered with Nelco of the Tata Group.

The Tata Group airline, which started last Friday (September 18) on board its Dreamliner with the Wi-Fi internet connection in flight, will initially offer the service free of charge as an introductory offer for all passengers. Tariff plans for the service will be announced later.
