Date of becoming
OnAir provides industry-leading, on-board connectivity solutions that enable passengers to stay connected while they travel, and airlines and shipping lines to differentiate themselves through offering distinct services to customers.
OnAir provides two products:
Mobile OnAir enables people to use their mobile devices in the same way they do on the ground by creating a GSM network inside the aircraft cabin. Costs are in line with international roaming rates and appear on passengers’ regular mobile phone bills.
Internet OnAir provides a WiFi hotspot in the aircraft, which passengers can access like any other hotspot: they simply enter their credit card details and start browsing.
Present aboard airlines on five continents, OnAir provides the only air-travel industry sponsored solution for commercial airlines, private and corporate jets, Airbus and Boeing aircraft, and for long and short-haul flights.
Today OnAir has 46 customers, of which 20 are currently in service. By the end of 2012 we expect to be in service with 24 airlines across the world. Other customers include VIP/business jet owners and operators, as well as cruise ship operators and Solar Impulse, the team developing the world’s first solar-powered aircraft. Airline customers range from full service airlines to low-cost carriers, and include airlines such as Qatar, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Hong Kong Airlines and TAM.
OnAir provides consistent global coverage, thanks to its unique network of around 80 supranational and national authorizations, over 350 roaming agreements with mobile network operators around the world, and by using Inmarsat’s satellite constellation, which provides coverage for all the routes OnAir's customers fly.
OnAir was incorporated in February 2005 and is owned by SITA, the leading IT solutions provider to the air transport world and Airbus, the leading aircraft manufacturer.
