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 SwiftBroadband.

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.
