TAM goes OnAir
TAM Airlines of Brazil is the latest carrier to sign up for the onboard cellphone service of connectivity provider OnAir.
The airline plans to offer Mobile OnAir, as the service is branded, from next year on its Airbus A320s serving routes in South America.
Mobile OnAir is currently being tested aboard a single Airbus A319 of TAP Portugal and is the subject of an increasingly long-awaited multi-Boeing 737 trial with RyanAir. The Portuguese airline’s six-month trial will be followed by an evaluation of passenger reactions and a decision on wider implementation. UK carrier bmi is preparing a similar campaign, and Air France concluded one earlier this year.
Other airlines linked with OnAir are AirAsia, AirAsia X, Jazeera Airways, Kingfisher Airlines, Oman Air, Royal Jordanian and Shenzhen Airlines of China. The company has also reached agreements on installation of its equipment aboard corporate and VIP aircraft with Switzerland’s Jet Aviation and German maintenance and modification provider Aviation Centre Cologne.
