Inflight Mobile Takes Off In Ireland

  • Published by Vedat

Irish tourists and business travellers have been quick to adopt inflight mobile services, according to AeroMobile, the leading mobile phone operator for the aviation industry.

Just 12 months after the first AeroMobile-connected flight to Dublin, the service provider has already transferred 25,000 text messages and 900 calls on flights to and from Ireland. Over 10,000 mobile devices have connected to the AeroMobile network on Irish flights.

Emirates and Etihad both operate flights to and from Ireland with AeroMobile connectivity onboard; the airlines fly from Dublin to Dubai and Abu Dhabi respectively. SAS also operate connected flights from Oslo and in the coming weeks Aer Lingus will be adding AeroMobile services to a number of long haul aircraft.

Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile, said: “At AeroMobile we’ve seen demand for inflight connectivity double over the past 12 months, and we’re pleased to see an increasing appetite for the service from Irish mobile users. With smartphone ownership on the rise, it makes sense that more and more consumers want to use their devices in the sky,”

“In 2013 we expect at least ten flights a day on Irish routes to offer AeroMobile’s network onboard. That’s 300 flights every month or 3,650 a year,” continues Rogers.

AeroMobile is a UK-based GSM service provider for the aviation industry and a member of the GSMA. The company provides technology and services that allow the safe use of passenger’s own mobile phones onboard aircraft; the AeroMobile system is approved for use by aviation authorities around the world, including the FAA and EASA.

AeroMobile currently has roaming agreements with over 215 mobile phone operators, covering more than 100 countries worldwide.
