Virgin Atlantic to offer AeroMobile connectivity
Published: May 28, 2012
Virgin Atlantic (VS) will launch AeroMobile connectivity onboard its Airbus A330 aircraft flying from London to New York, and on its Boeing 747 aircraft currently under refurbishment. It will offer the phone, text, email and web GPRS service on nearly 20 aircraft by the end of the year.
VS will be the first UK airline to roll-out the AeroMobile system, which will be available in all cabins. The service will be offered to passengers with 02 or Vodafone networks, and will bill customers for the international roaming charges. The service will not be permitted during take-off or landing and will need to be turned off approximately 250 miles from US airspace.
