Saudia is expanding its inflight connectivity
programme on routes between the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and most
of its worldwide destinations.
The airline has been providing OnAirís GSM and
Wi-Fi on its A330s for nearly three years.
Saudiaís new A330s, which will be delivered
throughout this year and next, will be equipped with Mobile OnAir
and Internet OnAir. They will join the A330s already flying with
OnAir connectivity, bringing the total to 12.
The airlineís existing and planned fleet of 20
B777-300ERs will also have OnAirís GSM and Wi-Fi services fitted,
enabled by the Thales TopConnect solution.
Both fleets will use Inmarsatís
ďOur experience has shown very clearly that
passengers want to be able to use their phones, tablets and
laptops to stay in touch during flights. That alone is a good
enough reason to provide connectivity more widely because we value
customer satisfaction very highly,Ē said Mr. Tarik Sindi, VP
Marketing & Product Management of Saudia.
