Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 6 February 2014

The number of passengers using inflight connectivity on Oman Airís OnAir-equipped Airbus A330s has increased dramatically in the past year, as has the volume of data exchanged.

 From 2012 to 2013, the number of Oman Airís passengers logging on to the OnAir networks increased by 45%, and 85% more data was used.

The airline has seven A330s fitted with both Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir.

Oman Air has worked on increasing usage by implementing a series of creative new marketing initiatives. These have included a promotion allowing passengers to use Frequent Flyer miles to purchase Wi-Fi codes, as well as offering free vouchers to First and Business class passengers in three or four different periods throughout the year.

The airline has also included a promotional advertising campaign and a clip about Mobile OnAir before every film.

ďHaving been the first airline in the world to offer both services, Oman Air has now been providing Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir for over four years. We also have plans for adding the services to more aircraft, as our fleet grows over the next few years,Ē said Andrew Walsh, Chief Officer Service Delivery at Oman Air. ďOur customers have warmly welcomed the services and, thanks to our creative and proactive approach to marketing onboard connectivity, we have seen a big growth in passenger usage in 2013. We actively encourage passengers to use Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir and we are confident that both will continue to meet service expectations.Ē
