OnAir Selected for A350XWB
OnAir will provide the in-flight communications system for the Airbus A350 XWB. OnAir, a joint venture of Airbus and SITA, said its system complies with the in-flight communications architecture (based on the ALNA V2 platform). OnAir is already linefit and retrofit offerable on the other Airbus families, and has been certified by EASA on 9 Airbus aircraft types.
“OnAir services can be integrated with all possible inflight entertainment and communication systems. This will be very important for the airline industry and in particular for the 40 percent of Airbus A350’s customers who have already chosen OnAir’s connectivity solutions,” said Benoit Debains, CEO of OnAir.
