OnAir adds Airblue to honours board
OnAir has added Pakistani domestic and international carrier Airblue to its growing list of airline relationships.
Besides the Karachi-based A320-family operator, OnAir has been linked with AirAsia, AirAsia X, Air France, the UK’s bmi, Jazeera Airways, Kingfisher Airlines, Oman Air, Royal Jordanian, Ryanair, Shenzhen Airlines of China, TAM of Brazil, TAP Portugal and Wataniya Airways of Kuwait.
Air France has completed a trial of the company’s onboard cellphone service, TAP is currently evaluating it, and Ryanair and bmi are due to make a start any time now. The other carriers have committed to implementing the service in their fleets, with Wataniya leading the way in January.
Airblue plans to offer Mobile OnAir voice, text messaging and email services on up to 12 of its A320s from next year. “We embody a new era in air travel,” says Airblue chief executive Tariq Chaudhary. “With services like e-ticketing, wireless mobile check-in and self-service kiosks in airports, we are constantly bringing innovations to our passengers. Mobile OnAir will enable us to generate inflight revenues and enhance our customer relationship management programmes.”
