OnAir has launched full Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir inflight passenger communications services on Egyptair’s first Airbus A330-300, which was delivered on 30 August. The airline has another four due for delivery over the next 18 months.
By offering both GSM/GPRS and Wi-Fi internet, OnAir says, the airline will give its passengers the broadest range of inflight connectivity options available anywhere in the world today.
“We are providing Egyptair customers with the latest services and greater choices," says the airline’s chairman and CEO, Captain Alaa Ashour. "OnAir inflight connectivity helps us further differentiate our offering, and enables our customers not only stay in touch but to access on-line services as they travel.”
“Within two to three years we’re convinced that all airlines will demand this level of onboard mobile communications,” adds OnAir CEO Ian Dawkins.
Egyptair’s A330-300 seats 301 passengers, with 265 in economy and 36 in business class.
