OnAir, a joint venture of Airbus and SITA, on Monday announced the termination of its agreement with Irish carrier Ryanair.
After operating the OnAir service on 50 of its aircraft for about a year, Ryanair wanted to expand deployment to its entire fleet. According to OnAir, the two companies did not reach a mutual agreement on the process and timing leading to the full deployment. Neither company can comment further on the terms of the agreement.
"It’s disappointing that OnAir and Ryanair couldn’t reach agreement on the detail of a roll-out to their entire fleet, but our experience was extremely positive and we wish Ryanair every success in the future," said Benoit Debains, CEO of OnAir.
OnAir currently operates with six airlines and has a portfolio of 23 signed agreements with national carriers worldwide. The company said it will also be launching its services with six more airlines during the course of this year.
