Hong Kong carrier Cathay Pacific Airways has selected Deutsche Telekom to develop and support its future Wi-Fi portal across the airline’s whole connected fleet.
The service will be rolled out by the end of the year on Cathay’s already Wi-Fi enabled Airbus A350 – followed by its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 fleets.
One key benefit of the service provided to Cathay is its ability to scale, with the airline’s future requirements catered for as part of the agreement. The single portal also facilitates the ongoing launch of new, up-to-date features harmonised across platforms.
“Our dedicated in-flight connectivity solution is based on our feature-rich ISP core platform,” said David Fox, Vice President In-flight & Connectivity Services at Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier. “It is designed to meet Cathay’s current as well as its future connectivity needs.”
From Cathay Pacific’s perspective, Vivian Lo, General Manager Customer Experience and Design, highlights that a highly connected world means it is important to give passengers a seamless and consistent Wi-Fi service.
