Ooredoo Signs MoU with Qatar Airways for Wifi
15 December 2015 |
Ooredoo and Qatar Airways have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that will see the operator sponsor the airline’s onboard Wifi service.
The three-year agreement positions Ooredoo as the exclusive onboard Wifi sponsor for Qatar Airways’ flights that are equipped with onboard Wifi.
"Qatar Airways continues to strive to offer the very best on-board experience for our customers, and our cutting-edge on board Wifi service provides an incredible connection. We are proud to work with Ooredoo, a leading Qatari company, to bring this service to the world," said Qatar Airways CEO.
As part of the agreement, customers can use portable electronic devices to access emails, browse the internet and send SMS/MMS when the service is enabled on board.
Ooredoo Qatar’s CEO said: “Ooredoo strives to ensure that customers can always enjoy the best network wherever they are in the world, and our partnership with Qatar Airways takes our commitment to connectivity to the skies. Qatar is leading the way in the incredible facilities being offered to visitors and residents, and we are pleased to extend our work with Qatar Airways through this important agreement."
The deal is the latest in a line of partnerships between Qatar Airways and Ooredoo, which includes an initiative by the airline to move its primary and backup data to Ooredoo’s cloud-hosting platform announced earlier in 2015.
