Saudia’s B787 project to complete long-haul connectivity plan


Having equipped its A330 and B777 fleets with OnAir connectivity services, Saudia is now turning its attention to its B787 fleet, which will complete the installation program for its long-haul fleet.

The first of Saudia’s eight B787 Dreamliner is due for delivery in December 2015. The airline has reported a 400% increase in mobile data usage and a 254% increase in internet usage over the last 12 months. The aircraft will be equipped with a Thales TopConnect solution, enabling access to OnAir’s wi-fi Internet and mobile phone services over Inmarsat SwiftBroadband.
