Wi-fi for Iberia

Iberia is now offering OnAir’s inflight connectivity on transatlantic routes.  Passengers flying between Europe and the Americas can use the inflight wi-fi and GSM during the flight.

By 2015, both Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir will be installed on 25 Iberia A330s and A340s.  Passengers on these long haul aircraft can use their phones and tablets to chat, tweet and send text messages.

“There will be no more waiting to update your social media status or wondering what’s happening in the office,” said Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir. “Passengers can be connected on routes across the whole world.”

OnAir provides global coverage, thanks to its unique network of authorizations from over 100 countries and more than 375 roaming agreements, combined with Inmarsat SwiftBroadband’s worldwide satellite coverage.  It gives the airline’s passengers exactly the same service wherever they are in the world.

“We’re very pleased that another European airline is now providing our inflight connectivity,” continued Dawkins.  “Other regions, particularly the Middle East and Asia, are moving ahead fast with satellite-based connectivity and European carriers are at risk of having to play catch-up.  I’m sure this will be the wake-up call they need to start proving what passengers want: the ability to stay in touch during flights."  www.iberia.com   www.onair.aero
