To enhance passengers onboard experience, Air Senegal is set to install the best-in-class high-speed inflight connectivity (IFC) on its new-generation A330neo fleet.
Provided by SITAONAIR, the IFC solution will make Air Senegal the first airline on the African continent to activate GX Aviation passenger connectivity onboard.
With a growing demand for connectivity from Africa’s young population and a change in the overarching aviation landscape, Air Senegal’s new inflight connectivity offering comes at a crucial moment for economic growth.
Senegal’s new flag carrier is ambitious to expand its footprint by connecting 2 million passengers on routes between Dakar and Paris, and drive innovation in the West African market.
SITAONAIR will install its market-leading Mobile ONAIR and Internet ONAIR inflight connectivity solutions – via Link ONAIR over Inmarsat’s GX Aviation network – across Air Senegal’s new A330neo.
With SITAONAIR’s Internet ONAIR solution over GX Aviation, Air Senegal passengers can access a personalized and seamless inflight connection, keeping them connected with their digital lives, business and loved ones as they fly.
Mobile ONAIR will also give Air Senegal's passengers seamless mobile connectivity experience, providing them with the opportunity to make calls and send texts from the air, just as they would on the ground.
Following the launch of its first flight to Europe in February 2019, passengers can now enjoy cutting-edge cabin connectivity on Air Senegal’s routes connecting West Africa with Europe.
With its new Airbus A330neo fleet, Air Senegal can now connect passengers from the heart of the West African country with Europe within six hours.
