Qatar Airways’ (Qatar) first A380 has begun operating scheduled flights between Doha and London fully ‘switched on’ with Mobile OnAir and next generation Internet OnAir in-flight connectivity services.
“Qatar Airways is one of the pioneers of in-flight connectivity on both long- and short-haul aircraft,” commented Ian Dawkins, OnAir’s CEO. “We are the only service provider with multiple inflight connectivity systems. We can therefore meet the airline’s connectivity requirements across all fleets.”
Dawkins continued, “Qatar Airways has provided connectivity for its passengers for nearly five years. Keeping passengers connected everywhere they fly around the world is an integral part of the airline’s exceptional cabin offering.”
OnAir claims that once Qatar’s nine other A380 aircraft are equipped with its platform-agnostic products, the company will have supplied over half of the world’s A380s with in-flight connectivity.
