OnAir, based in Geneva, Switzerland, said its Mobile OnAir in-flight connectivity system hit its 10,000th flight in commercial operation. The 10,000th flight was a TAP flight from Lisbon to Munich. Since December 2007, Mobile OnAir services have been used on flights to 162 cities in 34 countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, the company said. OnAir is a joint venture between Airbus and SITA. “This is a significant milestone and underlines how quickly our operations are expanding across a variety of markets. The feedback from inflight experience shows that phone use inside aircraft does not create any discomfort to passengers - we have not heard of one single complaint. In addition, we are seeing a host of new applications which will deliver additional services,” said Benoit Debains, CEO of OnAir.
