Etihad Launches OnAir Connectivity On A320s

Etihad now offers customers both inflight WiFi and GSM on its A320 fleet, allowing customers to have similar connectivity to that on the ground, according to the airline. The combined Wi-Fi and GSM connectivity service has been used on the airline’s A330-300 aircraft for nearly two years; GSM has proved the more popular of the two options, with passengers using it for a range of activities: 76% use it for mobile data, 33% send text messages and 21% make and receive calls. The first A320, equipped with the combined mobile and internet OnAir services, was delivered to the airline last month.
