Regulatory agencies from Ireland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium and The Netherlands approved Boeing Co.’s use of Ku-band radio frequencies for the planned launch of in-flight Internet services by the Connexion by Boeing venture.

The authorizations were granted to support service demonstrations with Lufthansa German Airlines and British Airways that will begin in the first quarter of 2003. The two leading European air carriers have pioneered the use of broadband connectivity onboard commercial aircraft and will commence three-month service demonstrations in January and February, respectively.
