ANA has revealed that as of summer 2013, Wi-Fi will be available on its international routes using the service "Internet OnAir" from in-flight connectivity provider, OnAir.
The service will work in the same way as a Wi-Fi hotspot on the ground and will initially be made available on the airline’s international fleet of B777-300ER and B767-300ER aircraft.
“ANA is delighted to announce the launch of OnAir Wi-Fi on its international routes. The service will offer passengers a new in-flight experience, giving them the flexibility and choice they deserve,” commented Senior Vice President of CS & Products Services and Innovations, ANA, Tetsuo FUKUDA. “We look forward to working with OnAir on this project.”
“ANA is a world-class airline, recognised for the high quality of its service,” stated OnAir’s CEO, Ian Dawkins. “ANA’s decision to choose OnAir’s SBB-based Wi-Fi product demonstrates that the combination of OnAir and SBB is the best solution for passenger connectivity.”
Internet OnAir provides global coverage with a combination of over 80 regulatory authorisations, as well as its use of Inmarsat’s I4 SBB network.
