Jio says the service will be available when the plane is 20,000 feet or higher. Users can then turn off the airplane mode of their phone and switch on data network. The phone will automatically connect to the available service network. The telco has not talked about the data speeds on offer with its in-flight service. The airlines offering supports for this service include The Emirates, Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific, Malaysia Airlines, and Lufthansa among others. Postpaid users on Jio pale in front of its prepaid userbase. And in-flight data plans like these are targeted at frequent business travelers.
