EgyptAir ready to install OnAir internet

EgyptAir has signed an agreement to install full Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir inflight passenger communications services on its fleet of twin-aisle Airbus 330-300 aircraft.The aircraft will be delivered over an 18 month period, starting August 2010, and will operate on European and North American routes as well as in the Middle East.

EgyptAir passengers will be able to stay connected inflight using their own mobile phones or smartphones to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages and emails, and access the Internet.

Using the Internet OnAir service, passengers will be able to access the Internet just as they do on the ground by connecting their laptops either wirelessly or via a wired connection.

EgyptAir’s Chairman, Captain Sherif Saad Eldin Galal, said, “We are constantly looking to improve our offering to passengers. This latest technology from OnAir helps us further differentiate our service, and enables our customers to stay in touch with colleagues, family and friends while they travel.”
