Inflight WiFi is to be offered by Cebu Pacific Air (5J), the Philippines’ largest carrier on its Airbus A330 fleet starting in 2013. The service will be provided by OnAir.
This means that its services are available around the world. Cebu Pacific passengers will be able to access the Internet during flights and make calls using Voice Over IP applications.
The A330 fleet is scheduled to have WiFi installed mid 2013, in time for the airline’s initial deployment of long haul services. CEB’s A330 fleet, planned for introduction in the third quarter of 2013, will allow Cebu Pacific to provide direct, non-stop flights to regions within the aircraft’s 11-hour flying range including the Middle East, Australia, parts of Europe and the U.S.
Cebu Pacific is OnAir’s first low-cost, long-range WiFi client in Asia.
