ANA to Use OnAir's In-Flight Wi-Fi Service
OnAir will provide its in-flight Wi-Fi service for All Nippon Airways (ANA) starting in summer 2013 for the airline's international routes, the companies said Friday.
The service will initially be made available on ANA B777-300ER and B767-300ER fleets serving ANA’s international network. The OnAir Wi-Fi service, called "Internet OnAir," will work in the same way as a Wi-Fi hotspot on the ground. Internet OnAir provides global coverage, with a combination of more than 80 regulatory authorizations, as well as its use of Inmarsat’s I4 SwiftBroadband network.
"ANA is delighted to announce the launch of OnAir Wi-Fi on its international routes. The service will offer passengers a new inflight experience, giving them the flexibility and choice they deserve. We look forward to working with OnAir on this project. OnAir has a wealth of experience in handling large scale fleet programs and delivering end-to-end connectivity solutions for multiple aircraft types,” said Tetsuo Fukuda, senior vice president of CS & Products Services and Innovations at ANA.
