Oi, one of Brazilís leading mobile phone
companies, is working with OnAir and TAM Airlines to halve the
cost of using OnAir's inflight GSM mobile phone network.
The promotion is designed to make inflight
connectivity more popular on domestic flights.
During this promotion, Oi Postpay customers
travelling with TAM will pay 50% less for using their own mobile
phones, smartphones and tablets for calls, texting, emailing and
synchronizing applications during flights.
OnAirís inflight GSM mobile phone service is
available on TAM routes within Brazil. TAM has a critical mass of
31 aircraft equipped with inflight connectivity, meaning the
service now reaches a significant passenger population; Andore
aircraft will be equipped during 2012.
ďNow that OnAir connectivity has been deployed
across so much of TAMís fleet, the time could not be better for
Oi, TAM and OnAir to promote the innovative connectivity service
intensively,Ē said Ian Dawkins, Chief Executive Officer OnAir.
ďOur ultimate aim is to ensure inflight connectivity is affordable
for everyone by bringing the cost closer to terrestrial prices.Ē
OnAir inflight GSM mobile phone and Internet
services are currently available on 16 airlines across the world.
