Date of becoming
OnAir is the world’s leading provider of inflight connectivity over satellite. Our products allow passengers to use their own mobile phones, smartphones, tablets and laptops in exactly the same way as they do on the ground, either through our onboard mobile phone network or Wi-Fi hotspot. OnAir has roaming agreements with more than 350 mobile network operators around the world and a unique network of authorizations from over 90 countries. In addition, we use Inmarsat’s satellite constellation. The combination means we provide reliable and consistent global coverage for all the routes OnAir's customers fly.
OnAir provides two main products:
creates a GSM network inside the aircraft, enabling people to use their mobile devices in the same way they do on the ground by. 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.
OnAir also provides Link OnAir, a platform for a wide range of passenger and crew connectivity applications.
OnAir offers a range of inflight connectivity systems, all of which are available for every aircraft type.
OnAir has over 50 customers, of which 28 are currently in service; the majority are airlines. Other customers include VIP and 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, Aeroflot and TAM.
OnAir was incorporated in February 2005 and is owned by SITA, the leading IT solutions provider to the air transport world.
