Garuda Indonesia has teamed up with OnAir to offer in-flight Wi-Fi on its A330s. Passengers flying with the Indonesian flag-carrier can now connect to the Wi-Fi service using their laptops, smartphones and tablets.
The service has been made available by OnAir’s arrangement with PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk, a state-owned enterprise company. According to OnAir, its Mobile OnAir GSM mobile connectivity service could also be added to Garuda Indonesia’s A330 fleet in the coming months, dependent on the establishment of the relevant regulatory framework.
Faik Fahmi, Director of Service, Garuda Indonesia, said: “We focus very strongly on providing a very high quality service through our ‘Garuda Indonesia Experience’, which is deeply rooted in the rich traditions of our national culture. There is no question that the very best modern flying experience must include in-flight connectivity, and that connectivity, like all our services, needs to be the same high level wherever we fly. That is a key reason why we chose OnAir.”
Ian Dawkins, CEO, OnAir, added: “We have now reached the point whereby in-flight connectivity is a must-have service across the world.”
