We have been talking about the new WiFi access gear for commercial and private aircraft for a while now. WiFi on commercial flights is very common today after debuting a few years back. A company called ASIQ has now unveiled a new Bluetooth access point for aircraft.

The new Bluetooth access point can be used by airlines to offer passengers access to a cheaper communications method than WiFi allowing the passengers to use several messaging services. The access point works with SMS, MMS, voice messaging, text, and email.

The device will allow users of mobile phones to use these forms of communication without having to connect to WiFi. The company behind the Bluetooth access point says that each aircraft can be fitted with Bluetooth access tech for about $10,000 per aircraft compared to WiFi systems costing about $100,000 per aircraft. The first installation is set for Q2 2010.
