Air Côte d’Ivoire boosts passenger experience offering with SITA FOR AIRCRAFT

Ivory Coast carrier Air Côte d’Ivoire is extending its relationship with trusted inflight connectivity partner SITA FOR AIRCRAFT across its new fleet of A320neo aircraft, enabling enhanced levels of passenger satisfaction.

The deployment, due in September 2020, will see Air Côte d’Ivoire’s new fleet enter into service with both SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s Mobile ONAIR and Internet ONAIR Wi-Fi over Inmarsat’s cutting-edge GX Aviation network.

The airline’s selection is set to meet increasing passenger demand for the ultimate level of speed and seamless connection. SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s Internet ONAIR portal also provides Air Côte d’Ivoire with a host of additional services with the potential for new ancillary revenue, as well as personalized content for its passengers.The addition of SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s Mobile ONAIR services on top of enhanced Wi-Fi connections offers the airline and its passengers the best of both worlds. Passengers can enjoy a seamless mobile connection in the air, as on the ground, while increased connectivity bandwidth provides enhanced reliability.

Mr. René Decurey, Chief Executive Officer, Air Côte d’Ivoire, comments: “It’s true that passenger expectations are growing. There is also increasing pressure to provide tailored services that cover the breadth of our passengers’ needs and data consumption. As Air Côte d’Ivoire continues to concentrate on enhanced, new generation inflight connectivity services for true passenger satisfaction, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT is the obvious, trusted partner to support our ambitions.”

Stephan Egli, Commercial VP Middle-East, Africa & Europe, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT, adds: “Having previously deployed SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s Internet ONAIR solution over SwiftBroadband, the move to GX reflects Air Côte d’Ivoire’s dedication to delivering true passenger satisfaction that’s future-proofed. By offering mobile and Wi-Fi services onboard, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT is able to provide an inflight connectivity service to passengers that delivers a unified, seamless and fast experience that costs less. SITA FOR AIRCRAFT is proud to be Air Côte d’Ivoire’s long-term partner in this venture.”
