RwandAir will become the fourth African airline to choose SITAONAIR as its connectivity provider. RwandAir has two A330s, both of which will be line fitted with mobile phone and Wi-Fi services. The first A330 will be delivered in October 2016.
SITAONAIR is the leading inflight connectivity provider in Africa, with more airline customers in the region than any other provider.
RwandAir is an international airline flying to all parts of Africa and the Middle East. It needs to offer passengers with consistent inflight connectivity coverage wherever it flies. SITAONAIR connectivity uses Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband, which provides consistent global coverage, along with an option to upgrade to GX Aviation when it comes to market, in 2016. Combined with SITAONAIR’s worldwide network of regulatory authorisations, this means SITAONAIR can provide RwandAir’s passengers exactly the same level of service on both African and Middle Eastern routes.
