Paris 2011: Bizjet Crowd Craves In-flight Comms More Than Most

 - June 19, 2011, 1:21 AM

There is one segment of aviation that has been largely impervious to the economic downturn–the highest of the high fliers; namely, owners and passengers in large-cabin business jets. They have proved to be early adopters of the most advanced in-flight connectivity and so it is to this sector that OnAir has turned its attention more recently, with half a dozen of its three dozen clients in this market to date.

More recent installations have included an Airbus ACJ319 operated by Comlux and a Dassault Falcon 7X in the fleet of Dasnair.

Last month, OnAir signed a new partnership with TriaGnoSys to provide installation of the voice, text message, Internet and email services on business aircraft. Germany-based TriaGnoSys has extensive experience providing mobile communications for land, sea and air applications.
