Dasnair Falcon 7X passengers will be able to use
their mobile phones and laptops during flights, thanks to OnAir's
inflight connectivity services.
Dasnair will be the world's first Falcon 7X
operator to provide the connectivity suite of services installed
on a large cabin long range business jet.
Terms of the agreement are currently being
finalized but the service is planned to be launched towards the end of
2011 and the first connected flight has already been booked.
OnAir's SwiftBroadband-based service Mobile
OnAir allows passengers to use their own mobile phones and
smartphones during flights, just as they do on the ground, for
calls, text messages, email and mobile data. Usage is billed by
the passenger's mobile operator, in the same way international,
which makes it very simple to use.
Passengers can also use inflight Internet using
laptops, tablets or any WiFi-enabled device. It works in the same
way as any hotspot in the ground.
"Our Falcon 7X fleet is at the forefront of
innovation and the level and quality of the services we offer to
our passengers are at the core of our strategy. With OnAir,
Dasnair is proud to set the highest standards by being the first
business jet operator worldwide to offer our passengers the
ability to remain in touch while they fly," said Gťrard Limat, CEO
The OnAir solution is designed and produced by
satellite communications specialist TriaGnoSys, it weighs only 15kg
and consists of just two hardware units. It is fully compatible
with any SwiftBroadband-capable Satcom system, for example
Honeywell and Thrane & Thrane. Simple installation is part of the
design process, and the equipment can be installed in the aircraft
during a standard maintenance check.
