Passengers travelling in Comlux the Aviation Group's new Airbus
319 CJ, which comes into service in January 2012, will be able to
remain in touch during flights using their mobile phones, thanks
to OnAir's inflight connectivity service.
Comlux passengers will be able to make and
receive calls and text messages, do their emails and use mobile
The A319 is the second Comlux aircraft to be
equipped with OnAir's services, following the flagship A320
Prestige, which just entered service at the beginning of May 2011.
OnAir's SwiftBroadband-based service Mobile
OnAir enables passengers to use their own mobile phones and
Smartphones wherever they are flying in the world. Usage is billed
by the passenger's mobile operator, in the same way as
international roaming, which makes it very simple to manage for
any VIP operator and charter.
"The aircraft is currently in our completion
facility in Indianapolis, USA, being prepared to our exacting
standards. It will operate from the Comlux headquarters in Zurich.
Our clients made it very clear they want to be able to communicate
during flights. Offering Mobile OnAir service is part of our
ongoing drive to improve our clients travel experience" said
Richard Gaona, CEO of Comlux the Aviation Group.
Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir, added, "Inflight
connectivity is now a reality and it should be no surprise that
people want to be able to use their phones during flights. After
all, we can use them in any other means of transportation. It is
particularly true of the people who charter Comlux aircraft, for
whom the ability to communicate during flights is very important."
