Emirates and Tenzing redefine airline travel with inflight e-mail
Posted on 8-Jan-2004 07:28 | Tags Filed under: News



Starting in Q1 2004 with the brand new Airbus Airbus A340-500 aircraft and progressing across the fleet, Emirates' inflight e-mail will be enabled by simply loading Tenzing software onto a server already fitted to the aircraft and connected to an existing communications system. Passengers use their own email addresses, including corporate email, in a secure environment.

The ultra-long-range Airbus A340-500 will be the first aircraft to include an onboard wireless LAN certified for passengers' own Wi-Fi-enabled laptop computers (including Palm and Pocket PC). This option will be available in addition to dial-up connections to the onboard server from passenger seats.

Maurice Flanagan, Emirates' Vice Chairman and Group President, said: "The seatback email and SMS products we already provide are very popular with passengers who are not carrying a laptop. The Tenzing service is targeted at those who do, including business travelers who need to keep in touch with their regular email accounts."

An airline known for its exceptional level of service, Emirates offers ultra sophisticated inflight entertainment on its brand-new A340-500s, including 500-plus channels, three times more than any other airline. It has also revolutionized First Class, with private, enclosed suites, mini-bars and room service. Inflight email completes the package, offering passengers an additional option for staying connected with business associates, family and friends.
