M1 customers using SITAONAIR’s Mobile OnAir in-flight roaming service on Singapore Airlines (SIA) can now get unlimited in-flight data roaming from SGD$25 (US$17.50) per day.
“We want to make it very simple and offer transparent prices for passengers to use their phones during flights,” explained François Rodriguez, SITAONAIR’s chief strategy and marketing officer. “Our partnerships with mobile phone operators across the world allow us to provide airlines and their passengers with the very best deals. The resulting lower prices and clear costs encourage people to use the service. The outcome is clear: in 2015, 19 million people around the globe used Mobile OnAir, making SITAONAIR the market’s dominant in-flight mobile phone operator.”
SITAONAIR’s in-flight connectivity services are now available on Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 777-300ER and A380 long-haul fleets, and in 2015, mobile data was the most popular service: 65% of passengers who connected to SITAONAIR’s onboard mobile network used it.
