Introducing the latest Wi-Fi internet technology onboard comes as part of ongoing efforts by the airline to provide a seamless and convenient experience to its passengers.

“With passengers using smart devices as an essential travel tool, and increasingly demanding a seamless Internet connection on the ground and in the air, we are delighted to take this important step for the airline and Saudi aviation as a whole.

“Partnering with SITAONAIR, with its digital harmonization expertise, our passengers benefit from fast registration speeds for our onboard Internet ONAIR portal, simple navigation, and a more personalized, enhanced IFC experience.”

Stephan Egli, Vice President of the Middle East, Africa and Europe at SITAONAIR, said: “It has been a privilege to work with SaudiGulf on this important project, both for the airline itself and the region.

“Through this commercial launch, SaudiGulf passengers will be able to enjoy seamless connectivity when they fly. They will also benefit from our latest Internet ONAIR enhancements, which deliver a greater level of personalization and flexibility than ever before, in addition to the solution’s dedicated customer care, security and bandwidth prioritization.”

He continued: “Through this rollout, across an initial four A320 aircraft, we have laid the groundwork necessary for SaudiGulf to advance their digital transformation and inflight connectivity ambitions and we look forward to watching the project evolve.”
