Aircalin is to offer its passengers unprecedented levels of inflight connectivity, after partnering with SITAONAIR to add the Internet ONAIR solution to its fleet.
The airline, based in the French territory of New Caledonia in the south-west Pacific, is engaged in a strategic development programme – Aircalin 2021 – that will see its fleet renewed with A330-900s and A320neos within the next three years.
Initiated on behalf of the airline’s major shareholder, the New Caledonian government, the programme will enable Aircalin to offer an increasing number of flights to new destinations, and boost tourism within the island group (Aircalin currently serves Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands).
As part of a strong commitment to provide passengers with the best-possible inflight experience, Aircalin approached aviation technology pioneer SITAONAIR to secure the use of its award-winning Internet ONAIR.
Powered by Inmarsat’s Ka-band satellite network GX Aviation, Internet ONAIR enables seamless, high-speed connectivity at all times, helping passengers to stay connected with loved ones on the ground, or keep up with the latest news.
