Aeroconseil to Enhance SIA's Onboard GSM and Wi-Fi Service

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 5 April 2011

OnAir and Aeroconseil will, in the coming months, begin fitting nineteen Boeing 777 aircraft from the Singapore Airlines fleet with onboard GSM and Wi-Fi technology.

Aeroconseil will cover the engineering and certification aspects of the changes alongside OnAir, which is providing equipment and the connectivity services to passengers' mobile devices.

 Ian Dawkins, Chief Executive Officer of OnAir, said, "OnAir is delighted to work with Aeroconseil, which has an established reputation in the design and certification of inflight connectivity STCs. It is clear airline passengers increasingly expect to be able to use their mobile devices for calls, texting, emails and mobile data during flights. A seamless transition is growing between how we stay in touch in a taxi, on the train, at the airport and on the plane. As OnAir's customer base expands to help airlines meet those passenger demands, we will continue to partner with expert specialists such as Aeroconseil."

The new technology is being installed thanks to Aeroconseil's acknowledged expertise, particularly in the design and certification of such systems. Indeed, owing to its DOA (Design Organisation Approval) status, which means it can provide support up to certification of the modifications, Aeroconseil has quickly established itself as a reference partner for the leading providers of inflight communications services, a sector in which OnAir is a key player.

"This contract acknowledges our ability to position ourselves at the forefront for new systems. Building on our proven skills in engineering and our expertise in certification, we are able to cater for even the most complex and innovative changes with strong implications for the aircraft environment," said Stphane Bollon, Sales Director in charge of Air Transport activity at Aeroconseil.
