OnAir + British Airways... Inflight Portal Of The Mobile Kind (SATCOM)
The first inflight mobile portal marks a new era in what passengers can expect from staying connected as they fly — information and services highly tailored to their journey and destination. Using Club Mobile and in addition to viewing their flight information, passengers can consult the weather forecast for their destination, check traffic congestion, book a chauffeur, access concierge services, view guides to local events or check sport results from soccer and tennis championships this summer. Use of the web-based services is intuitive and very simple — passengers simply switch on their phones and will receive a text message with a direct link to access the portal.
