Saudia named the Best Connected Airline with OnAir
OnAir has commemorated its long and successful relationship with Saudia by naming the airline as ‘The Best Connected Airline with OnAir’.
Saudia provides OnAir’s full GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity on its entire long-haul fleet of A330s, B777s and B787s. Its passengers can use their smartphones, tablets and laptops in exactly the same way as they do on the ground – for emails, Internet browsing, updating social media, text messaging and calls.
“The passengers onboard Saudia have benefitted hugely from having connectivity on our aircraft,” said Abdulrahman Alfahad, VP Marketing & Product Management. “We have already been working together for nearly four years and this is just the beginning.”
OnAir’s connectivity first flew on Saudia’s A330s in September 2010. Three years later, the airline installed connectivity on more A330s, as well as on its B777 fleet. And when Saudia’s B787s start flying at the end of 2015, they will also be fully equipped with OnAir connectivity.
On this occasion Mr. Alfahad expressed his happiness to won this award and to the support received by Chief Commercial Officer Mr. Abdul Aziz ALhazmi and the directive to provide the premium services to our valued passengers onboa rd aircraft.
