We show feasibility of deployment of global wireless communications network with airliners, especially for disastrous vast areas by earthquakes or a tsunami as well as unwired regions of the global to extend Internet access. In this study, we collect flight information data related to civil aircraft passing through, especially South Korea, Japan, United States, and Europe. From the collected data, we obtain hourly available service area ratio and cumulative average service area when airliners are equipped with a long range wireless communication gadget. Then, we reveal that it is possible to deploy global wireless communications network using airliner ad hoc network.
