OnAir Partners with PATS and Expands its Completion Center List


Meba, Dubai | December 11, 2012– OnAir continues to expand its network of completion centers, with the addition of Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) specialist PATS Aircraft Systems. The first joint project is the installation of Mobile OnAir on a Boeing 737-900ER BBJ, due for delivery in the first half of 2013.

“The list of our completion center partners is growing by the month, making it easier and easier for business jet owners and operators to equip their aircraft with our inflight connectivity technology,” said Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir. “We aim to choose those with particular expertise and skills to suit the needs of this market; in this case, PATS Aircraft Systems is one of a handful of designated BBJ Service Centers. As you’d expect, the VIP market is an early adopter of inflight connectivity: business never stops, so VIPs have to remain in touch at all times, including during flights.”

“We are seeing a high demand from VIP jet operators for inflight connectivity”, said John Eichten, SVP for Sales & Marketing at PATS Aircraft Systems. “PATS prides itself on finding innovative and industry leading ways to satisfy our customer’s requirements and our partnership with OnAir is a good example of that. As a supplier of products and services to all aircraft OEMs, PATS also has a distinct culture focused on customer service, a value which OnAir also exemplifies through in-service support of our collective customers worldwide.”
