Libyan Airlines has signed an agreement for Mobile OnAir inflight passenger communications services to be installed on its brand new fleet of seven Airbus A320 aircraft.

The airline is expecting delivery of the aircraft in 2010, and is the first single-aisle operator in Africa to announce plans to offer passengers inflight connectivity services.

Libyan Airlines’ passengers will be able to stay connected inflight using their own mobile phones or BlackBerry-type devices to make and receive phone-calls, send and receive text messages and emails, and access the Internet.

Capt. Mohamed M. Ibsem, Member of Board of Directors and CEO Libyan Airlines said, “Providing this service will help differentiate us from the competition and is part of our ongoing drive to constantly improve levels of service for our passengers. Aboard these brand new Libyan Airlines aircraft, our passengers will be able to stay in touch with colleagues, family and friends while they travel. We selected OnAir because it offers the best service, is the most technologically advanced system, and represents the best way forward to take advantage of ongoing technology development.”
