AeroMobile, a subsidiary of Panasonic Avionics has signed a partnership agreement with UAE telecommunications operator du. By doing so, it will be able to offer du subscribers in-flight mobile connectivity.
The partnership will expand on du's popular international roaming plans especially its "Roaming data bundle on preferred networks." Currently, it enables subscribers to use their phones in 86 different countries for the same price as being at home.
Fahad Al Hassawi, deputy CEO of Telco Services at EITC believes that du is constantly seeking innovative ways to transform the connected experience for its valued customers. He believes that this partnership has literally taken du's services and telco experience to new heights.
The international roaming bundles from du will now include AeroMobile's in-flight mobile services, which will enhance the experience of travelling further. Subscribers will be able to browse the internet and stay connected, send and receive texts, listen to voicemail and make and receive calls on AeroMobile equipped aircrafts at no extra cost if they have the eligible roaming data package active.
