Singapore Airlines will provide Wi-Fi and GSM passenger connectivity on its long-haul fleets, using OnAir’s connectivity services operating over Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband.
Following an introductory launch earlier in the year, inflight connectivity is now available on 14 Singapore Airlines aircraft, including all five Airbus A340-500s which are deployed on the world’s longest non-stop flights, between Singapore and both Newark and Los Angeles, as well as on Airbus A380-800s. It will also be available on the airline’s Boeing B777-300ERs.
Inmarsat SwiftBroadband provides high data rate IP-based satellite communications coverage, to enable inflight connectivity. SwiftBroadband already delivers multiple channels of IP communications to aircraft.
