Airline Avianca has started an implementation of Wi-Fi connectivity in its aircraft serving destinations within Brazil.

According to the Colombian company, the project is to roll-out the service gradually until December 2017, when it's expected that the entire fleet of 41 planes will be equipped with the service.

Currently, only one plane offers the satellite-enabled service, which will only be free in the first three months after launch. It is expected that an additional five planes will be equipped by the end of October.

Avianca is the first airline to offer Wi-Fi on board in South America.

Before offering the service in Brazil, companies need to obtain an authorization from the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).

According to ANAC, airlines need to demonstrate that the equipment used to provide the Wi-Fi service does not interfere with aircraft instruments and also that contingency procedures are in place for cases where interference is detected during a flight.

Other larger Brazilian carriers such as TAM and Gol have also requested the authorization required to roll out the service.
