Airline communication specialist SITA has formalised its alliance with Tenzing, which is developing e-mail services for in-flight passenger use. Last October they signed a memorandum of understanding to offer e-mail/ Internet-based services to passengers via SITA's satellite communication network. Tenzing aims to introduce its FlightConnect service, enabling passengers to use their laptop computers and e-mail accounts to send and receive messages, late this year.
