Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 23 June 2009

Hong Kong Airlines has signed an agreement with OnAir for the installation of Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir inflight passenger communications services on its new fleet of twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft – four A330-200 and six A330-300.

 The new aircraft will be delivered starting November 2010, and will operate on routes in South East Asia, China and North America.

Hong Kong Airline passengers will be able to stay connected inflight using their own mobile phones or smartphones to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages and emails, and access the Internet.

 Using the Internet OnAir service, passengers will be able to access the Internet just as they do on the ground by connecting their laptops either wirelessly or via a wired connection.

 With OnAir providing both GSM/GPRS as well as Wi-Fi Internet, Hong Kong Airlines’ passengers will have a broad range of inflight connectivity options available.

Hong Kong Airlines’ President Mr Yang Jianhong said, “We are constantly looking to improve our passengers’ travel experience. As we expand our fleet of aircraft, this latest technology from OnAir helps us further differentiate our service, and enables our customers to stay in touch with colleagues, family and friends while they travel.”

Mobile OnAir uses the industry’s most advanced and extensive infrastructure for mobile communications, along with Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, high capacity services from Inmarsat 4th generation satellites. This gives Hong Kong Airlines’ passengers the best reach and performance available today.
