Air Côte d'Ivoire signs up for SitaOnAir's connectivity services

Posted 6 February 2017 · Add Comment

Airline passengers flying to and from the Ivory Coast can now expect a connected experience, as national airline, Air Cote d'Ivoire , signs up for inflight passenger connectivity services from SitaOnAir.

The new deal will deliver connectivity solutions to VRE’s brand new A320s, in the form of SitaOnAir’s internet ONAIR and mobile ONAIR products.

With Internet ONAIR onboard, airlines can offer passengers seamless inflight internet access, connecting their personal devices by opening a browser – just as they would with a public Wi-Fi hotspot.

Airlines can use Internet ONAIR to personalize their passenger relationships by developing a portal that can offer an interactive and engaging experience for the passenger. It also offers opportunities for airlines to grow their ancillary revenues.

Mobile ONAIR, meanwhile, offers passengers an airborne mobile phone service that enables them to make phone calls, send texts and use their mobile phone data inflight, through an extensive number of roaming partners in Africa and across the world.

In June 2017, SitaOnAir’s teams will begin activating Internet ONAIR and Mobile ONAIR on five new Air Côte d’Ivoire A320s equipped with Airbus’ Airline Network Architecture (ALNA) server platform. The services will make use of SwiftBroadband, an IP-based data service from Inmarsat that SitaOnAir, as distributor, will operate as service provider.
