Royal Jordanian will offer OnAir’s inflight Internet and mobile phone services, including e-mail, SMS, and voice calls on routes in the Middle East and Europe beginning in 2008.
The OnAir service will let passengers use their mobile phones and personal data devices to send and receive text messages, e-mails, and mobile phone calls inflight, and to use their laptop computers to access the Internet.

The airline’s single-aisle Airbus 320 family of aircraft will be installed with a standalone GSM/GPRS system in 2008, and the twin-aisle A340 family will be installed with the GSM/GPRS/Internet service in 2009.

Call Capacity/‘Silent Mode’ Mobile OnAir will allow unlimited text messages and e-mails to be sent, and will allow up to 11 simultaneous voice calls.

The cabin crew has the ability to turn off the service at any time, or switch it to “silent” (text and e-mail only) mode.

Samer Majali, President and CEO, Royal Jordanian, said: “Being the first airline in the Middle East to provide OnAir’s services underlines the fact that we are always seeking to offer the best customer
service to our passengers.”
