Garuda to install IT facilities in aircraft next year

PT Garuda Indonesia confirmed that it would equip its aircraft with in-flight information technology facilities in 2011 to improve its service to passengers. Passengers can then communicate through an internet service and also send short text messages.

All new Garuda planes would be equipped with mobile technology and later all Garuda planes will also be given the capability. The technology will allow passengers to communicate using the short text message service (SMS) and operate laptops on board aircraft.

The technology has been developed abroad and does not disrupt the air navigation system. However, it will not include phone calls.
