In addition, SITAOnAir has established a wide-ranging deal with worldwide mobile operators to give passengers stress-free data bundles, simplifying billing through unlimited data usage and capped costs. It will also provide a potential opportunity for airlines to boost ancillary revenues through providing access to different revenue streams by monetizing the cellular service.

Francois-Xavier Mateo (pictured), SITAOnAir’s Head of Cabin, said: “SITAOnAir is the very first in the industry to be introducing future-proof inflight cellular technologies over GX Aviation. This announcement is a significant and exciting development for inflight mobile services. In 2016, an impressive 19 million airline passengers chose to connect to SITAOnAir’s inflight cellular network. By December this year, Mobile OnAir will be delivering its enhanced broadband-based mobile experience for airline passengers.”
