When I flew with Cebu Pacific Air’s flights 5J 188 bound for Incheon, South Korea on January 14, 2014 and 5J 189 bound for Manila International Airport in the Philippines on January 20, 2014 I got to experience their Wi-Fi service provided by OnAir, a global in-flight connectivity service company.
Zurich-based OnAir delivers its Wi-Fi service by using the Inmarsat SwiftBroadband technology and roaming agreements worldwide.
This was my first time to fly after CAAP announced that it now approves use of Personal Electronic Devices.
How much does it cost to use OnAir’s Wi-Fi services?
Cebu Pacific Air offers two types of plans. The first plan lets users a 50MB of Internet access for US$10 with optional charges of US$0.12 per 100KB of data over plan limit.
