Hong Kong Airlines chooses OnAir inflight connectivity for A330s
Hong Kong Airlines and OnAir have announced an agreement for the former to install full Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir inflight passenger communications services on the airline's new fleet of Airbus A330s – four A330-200s and six A330-300s. These will be delivered from November 2010, and will operate on routes in southeast Asia, China and North America.
Hong Kong Airline passengers will be able to stay connected inflight using their own mobile phones or smartphones to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages and e-mails, and access the internet. Using the Internet OnAir service, passengers will be able to access the internet just as they do on the ground by connecting their laptops either wirelessly or via a wired connection.
Hong Kong Airlines’ president Yang Jianhong commented, “We are constantly looking to improve our passengers’ travel experience. As we expand our fleet of aircraft, this latest technology from OnAir helps us further differentiate our service, and enables our customers to stay in touch with colleagues, family and friends while they travel.”
The announcement comes amidst mounting demand for inflight passenger communications. A growing number of commercial airlines and private aviation companies either currently offer inflight communications services or will offer them in the near future.
