TAAG Angola invests in B777 connectivity


With an agreement to line-fit its new B777-300ER fleet with Internet OnAir and Mobile OnAir, TAAG Angola Airlines has become OnAir’s first Sub-Saharan African customer. The airline will use Thales’ TopConnect system to access OnAir’s inflight wi-fi and mobile phone services on its new fleet, to be delivered from May 2014.

“TAAG is an ambitious airline, leading the modernisation of air transport in Angola,” said Captain Lourenço Manuel Gomes Neto, EVP of operations at TAAG Angola Airlines. “OnAir connectivity, in the form of inflight wi-fi and GSM, gives our passengers the freedom to stay in touch with the world outside the aircraft, strongly enhancing their experience. The worldwide service reliability is particularly important, given the routes we fly across from and across Africa.”

SriLankan Airlines has also opted to line-fit an OnAir system.
