AirAsia has partnered OnAir to offer passengers inflight connectivity services aboard the low cost carrier's Airbus A320s.

Passengers flying on South East Asian routes from Kuala Lumpur LCC airport to destinations including Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok or Colombo can now stay connected with their friends, family and business colleagues.

Using their own GSM mobile phones or smartphones they can make and receive voice calls, send text messages or emails and access the Internet through GPRS.

Maxis is the key marketing partner of OnAir and AirAsia for this service and provides the full promotion of the GSM inflight service to passengers. This includes promotional prices on text messages and other data and sponsorship of an inflight text message contest allowing passengers to win a free drink during the flight.

"OnAir is very pleased to be working with AirAsia in entering a high-potential market," said Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir. "The launch marks a very significant milestone for us as it underlines the benefits of OnAir's services to low-cost carriers. We are also very proud to be the first to establish a strong marketing cooperation with Maxis, a major mobile phone company in this region."

Azran Osman-Rani, Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia X, added, "this is another revolutionary passenger service initiative in the region from AirAsia. In addition to offering our guests the lowest air fares, we enable them to use their mobile phones or other preferred smartphone devices in the air, just as they do on the ground."
