ip.access deploys picocells in Azerbaijan airport
UK-based ip.access has teamed up with Azerfon to deploy picocells in Baku’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Azerbaijan and also onto Azal Airlines’ aircraft operating from the capital’s airport.
Nar Mobile has now become the first mobile company in Azerbaijan to offer in-flight mobile communication services - on board of the Azerbaijan Airlines fleet.
The partnership will now allow passengers flying to or from Baku on Azal flights – to be able to make and receive calls, send SMS and surf the internet from their own mobile phones using the on board Nar Mobile network.
Timucin Kutar, Azerfon’s CTO said: “Heydar Aliyev airport is one of the busiest international airports in the region and its position makes it a popular locale for transferring passengers.”
“By quickly delivering this project, ip.access will help us provide in-flight GSM coverage for Voice, SMS and Data Access for some million passengers while they are in the air journey with Azal’s aircrafts,” he added.
