The in-flight connectivity provides internet connection while on-board to their respective airplane passengers and crew. Transmitters on the plane communicate with a ground station, either using radio waves or through a satellite. The modes of in-flight internet transmission are air to ground and satellites.
Air to ground can connect directly to ground-based cellular networks, which transform commercial aircraft into flying hotspots that allow passengers to enjoy full connectivity to the web, messaging or email. In satellites in-flight transmission, a small satellite antenna located on the top of the plane fuselage communicates with a satellite in orbit above the earth. That satellite, maintains a constant connection with a ground station, acts as a bridge to supply the plane with a live link to the internet.
