German airline Lufthansa will become the first carrier to provide Boeing’s Connexion service to its passengers.

The service will be unveiled on May 17 on non-stop flights from Munich to Los Angeles, with plans to outfit their entire fleet over the next year.



Passengers will be able to purchase access using their credit cards and Wi-Fi enabled laptops. The cost is set at $30 for the entire flight or $10 for 30 minutes.



Boeing has planned to install the system on over 300 planes by 2006. Singapore Airlines has jumped onboard, with plans to have its first plane equipped this year, and soon thereafter its entire long-range fleet.
