Inflight connectivity within Australian airspace is now possible as OnAir has been granted authorization for its airline customers to provide Internet OnAir, the inflight Wi-Fi service.
OnAir’s customers currently operating WiFi services on flights to Australia, including Emirates, Qantas and Singapore Airlines, can now capitalise on this new authorization, meaning passengers can use Wi-Fi throughout the flight, including over Australian airspace.
“Airlines who want their passengers to enjoy inflight connectivity wherever they travel need OnAir,” said Ian Dawkins, OnAir CEO. “Our expertise in securing regulatory approvals means we have a network of more than 80 governmental authorities and over 350 roaming agreements with mobile operators. OnAir is the only provider able to offer inflight Wi-Fi and GSM mobile phone services on a global scale.”
OnAir has, for the past seven years, led the industry’s work in building strong relationships with national telecommunications regulators and ensuring its inflight connectivity solutions meet their requirements. This has been a significant contributing factor to the growth of inflight connectivity, and in particular in OnAir’s market leadership.
