Ryanair on 19 February launched inflight mobile phone service via the OnAir inflight connectivity system on 20 aircrafts that are primarily based in Dublin and fly to London and other European high-traffic business routes. Royal Jordanian on 23 February launched its OnAir service on a recently received Airbus 319 aircraft flying to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and India.

Passengers on Ryanair’s OnAir-enabled aircrafts, can now make and receive GSM voice calls at approximately £1.50-£3.00 per minute, text messages for about £0.40+, and e-mails for £1.00-£2.00 using their mobile phones, personal data devices, and smartphones. Prices are set by each passenger’s mobile service provider, and charges will appear on the user’s regular bill.

The service initially will be available to customers of ‘O2’ (a mobile operator in the UK) and to customers of more than 50 other mobile phone operators across Europe through roaming agreements. OnAir confirmed that it is working with other UK mobile operators (Vodafone, Orange, and 3).
