Oman Air is introducing the latest Airbus AirLine Network Architecture (ALNA) system for in-flight Wi-Fi and mobile phone usage on its new fleet of Airbus A330-300s.
ALNA is available as line fit on Airbus aircraft, and will allow passengers to use personal electronic devices (PEDs) to send and receive SMS messages and e-mails with attachments, access the internet or make and receive phone calls.
Another feature of Oman Air’s new A330-300 is the Thales AVANT in-seat audio video on demand in-flight entertainment system, which the airline recently showcased on its new B737-900ER aircraft.
In business class, passengers can access a selection of films, TV, music and games on a 17-inch monitor controlled by a touch-screen handset. The business class seating, designed by B/E Aerospace, has electrically-operated backrests, seat bottoms, seat depths and leg-rest controls, as well as an integrated reading light and mood light controls, which enables passengers to work, read or relax.
Passengers in all cabin classes can charge PEDs using either a universal power outlet or a USB port.
