TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR ONBOARD WIFI EXPERIENCE
To get the most out of your connectivity, we recommend the following settings on your smartphone or tablet:
- iOS: disable automatic updates of your installed applications.
- Android : restrict data usage on Aircalin Connect Wifi
- Disable automatic notifications from your installed applications
Please note that your inflight internet access involves complex satellite technology and the experience may differ from what you are used to on the ground.
My internet package terminated before the end of the period stated when I purchased it.
Packages are based on a connection time and a volume representing normal in-flight Wi-Fi use. When this volume is attained, the internet session ends. Internet access during your flight may be suspended or unavailable for the following reasons: - the plane has not yet reached an altitude of 3000 m (10,000 feet) - the plane is flying over a country or zone which does not allow in-flight WiFi access - technical connectivity problems may be encountered - Refreshing the login portal page can tell you whether access is available or not.
If I do not use up my purchased internet package during the flight, can I use any time left on a future flight?
Internet packages, paid or free of charge, are only valid for the designated flight. Unused connection time cannot be used on any other flight.
How do I get an invoice for the purchase of my internet package?
When you validate your purchase, confirmation is sent to the email address you supplied. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please request it by emailing customer service : email@example.com
Can I connect several devices simultaneously?
You can use your paid or free package to connect up to 5 different smartphones, tablets or laptops. However, devices cannot be connected simultaneously, and you can only connect devices if you use your customer account to purchase your package for in-flight WiFi access.
I purchased a package but my connection didn’t work during the flight.
If you were unable to get WiFi access during the flight, you can submit a claim by emailing Sitaonair customer service (firstname.lastname@example.org), giving your order reference (included in purchase confirmation email for paid packages).
Why can’t I access my free WiFi session?
Hibiscus Business passengers get a free internet package up to 200MB. Premium Economy, Flying Blue Gold and Platinum passengers get a 50MB/ 1 hour internet package. Passengers must key in the e-ticket number (13 digits) shown on their boarding cards. If you can’t find your number or if the number does not work, you can ask the cabin crew for help in accessing the internet.
Can I gift my internet connection to someone else?
Both free of charge and paid packages are only valid for the designated flight for which they were purchased or provided free of charge.
My WiFi connection quality was disappointing.
In-flight connectivity is linked to complex technology so your in-flight WiFi experience may not be the same as the WiFi access you are used to on the ground. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact our customer service: cs@sitaonair
My bank did not charge me the same amount as the XPF amount shown on the portal.
The amount in XPF is given for information purposes only and can vary depending on the current exchange rate. The transaction is processed in USD.
My bank charged a commission.
The purchase amount of your internet package is charged in USD. A currency exchange rate and a commission fee set by your bank, as of the purchase date, will apply.

9. Internet OnAir Availability
While SITAONAIR endeavours to ensure that Internet ONAIR is normally available (while the aircraft is in cruise phase) during your flight, we do not guarantee that it will be uninterrupted or error free during the course of your flight. Use of Internet ONAIR is subject to regulatory approval in the airspace above each over-flight country and, depending on the particular flight path, there may therefore be some temporary suspension. Access to Internet ONAIR may also be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance or repair or for reasons beyond our control; however, we will make reasonable attempts to ensure you are made aware of any system interruptions. You acknowledge that Internet ONAIR uses evolving technology in an airborne environment and may be subject to unauthorized interception, and are not inherently secure. Additionally, a laptop computer, mobile telephone, personal electronic device or other device using wireless connections may be more vulnerable to unauthorized attempts to access data and software stored on the device. We therefore cannot guarantee the privacy of your data and communications while using Internet ONAIR. Any and all data that you transfer using Internet ONAIR is transferred at your own risk. For your protection, your credit card or other payment card information, as well as any personal information that is sent by us from the aircraft to the ground is encrypted using secure socket layer ("SSL") technology which attempts to prevent unauthorized persons from reading that information. SSL technology is the standard for data encryption and server-side authentication for secure Web-based transactions (such as e-commerce). You therefore agree to use Internet ONAIR at your own risk. SITAONAIR and the airline on which you are travelling provides no guarantee as to security or availability of service.
10. Disclaimer of Warranty
Dans les limites prévues par la loi en vigueur, SITAONAIR décline toutes responsabilités concernant l'ensemble des garanties, déclarations, termes et conditions concernant les informations, services et matériels contenus sur Internet ONAIR, y compris les garanties tacites de qualité ou de conformité pour un usage particulier.

In no event will SITAONAIR or the airline on which you are travelling be liable for any loss of profit or revenue or for any indirect, special, exemplary, or consequential losses or damages whatsoever arising out of access to, or the use of, this Application or any information contained in it, in all cases whether or not in the contemplation of the parties, and whether based on breach of contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.

We may also collect information about your travel such as destination and airline or any other travel related data. If this information is collected, it is used only to provide customer support in the case such support is required.

Your data will be stored by SITAONAIR in its data storage center in the Netherlands. However, given the international nature of our services, your data may be transferred to and stored in countries with varied levels of data protection. This may occur for various reasons, depending on where SITAONAIR collects your data or to comply with applicable laws. Where this is the case, SITAONAIR will ensure it protects your data to the highest level required under the local data privacy laws and, if higher, EU data privacy laws.
7. PROTECTION AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA
Your personal registration information is protected by your inflight user ID and password, so that others cannot access it. You should keep your user ID and password secret and avoid writing it down or storing it on your computer. When you have finished a session, always remember to close all windows (applications), including the Internet OnAir Status page. SITA OnAir uses all reasonable endeavours to ensure, as far as possible, the security of the information it collects. Hence, for inflight services, a server is installed onboard the aircraft with security features designed to protect your information. External access to this server is protected by advanced firewall technology designed to block and filter traffic passing through it. In addition, SITA OnAir uses encryption technology such as Secured Socket Layer protocol to protect your personal and sensitive information to transfer and store on the aircraft server. SITA OnAir uses the highest precautions during transmission of data to the ground. All data is encrypted in the air and on the ground.

9. PUBLIC FORUMS
SITAONAIR uses Essential / Functional Cookies to ensure the correct navigation and functional aspects of the Internet ONAIR Portal. A cookie is a small data file that is sent by a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive when using a web browser. It allows SITAONAIR to identify you when you use Internet ONAIR. Internet ONAIR utilizes both session and persistent cookies. A session Cookie, also known as an in-memory cookie, transient cookie or non-persistent cookie, exists only in temporary memory while the user navigates the website. Web browsers normally delete session Cookies when the user closes the browser. A persistent Cookie does not expire when the web browser is closed as session Cookies do. Instead, a persistent Cookie expires at a specific date or after a specific length of time. This means that, for the Cookie's entire lifespan its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the website that it belongs to, or every time the user views a resource belonging to that website from another website. These cookies are reset if the expiration time is reached or the user manually deletes the Cookie. The “help” feature on most browsers will tell you how to stop your browser from accepting new Cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new Cookie and how to disable Cookies altogether. (Please note that disabling Cookies may adversely affect your browsing experience). You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash Cookies, by changing the add-on settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
