OnAir and TriaGnoSys have partnered to offer an
inflight mobile phone service which is combined with the smallest
and lightest airborne hardware.
The solution will be fitted on Dasnair’s Falcon
7X aircraft, as released in May, with a growing number of
undisclosed customers to start installation in the coming months.
OnAir and TriaGnoSys have subjected the complete solution to
rigorous testing, both in the lab and over satellite, resulting in
a fully integrated turnkey system that can be installed on any
aircraft type. It allows passengers to use their mobile devices
for calls, text messaging, email and to access the Internet.
Ian Dawkins, OnAir CEO, said, “The combination of OnAir’s
global mobile phone service and TriaGnoSys’ airborne hardware is unique. We have the widest geographic reach of any inflight mobile
phone service provider and the equipment is sufficiently flexible to be fitted to any plane and to meet all customer requirements.
That means it is suitable for all types of aircraft.”
mobile phone solution uses Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, which provides
global coverage, as well as a clear upgrade path to
Global Xpress, Inmarsat’s global Ka-band solution.
Jahn, TriaGnoSys managing director, said, “The hardware has been
designed specifically for the business jet market: it is small, lightweight and very simple to install. It is scalable and can be
used for a wide range of appealing passenger applications,
services and entertainment.”
