OnAir, which provides in-flight mobile phone and data services for commercial airlines, says it's terminated its agreement with Ryanair. The companies had been working together for two years, with OnAir service available on 50 Ryanair aircraft for around 12 months. Typical prices were between €2.00 and €3.00 per minute to make and receive calls.
Ryanair wanted to expand deployment to its entire fleet but the two companies were unable to reach a mutual agreement.
Benoit Debains, CEO of OnAir, said "It's disappointing that OnAir and Ryanair couldn't reach agreement on the detail of a roll-out to their entire fleet, but our experience was extremely positive and we wish Ryanair every success in the future. OnAir remains fully committed to inflight connectivity. The company also serves long-range aircraft operators, VIP and governmental customers as well as cruise liners.''
