Aer Lingus and in-flight mobile

Passengers on-board Aer Lingus long haul flights can now use their own mobile phones to text and browse the internet, using AeroMobile's inflight roaming service.

All seven of the airline's Airbus A330 aircraft, which serve the USA from the Republic of Ireland, have been fitted with the AeroMobile service, meaning travellers can stay in touch by SMS, or email a colleague from 30,000 feet.

In-flight roaming has already proved a hit with travellers on connected flights in and out of Ireland; in the last six months more than 20,000 passengers have connected to the AeroMobile network on flights operated by Emirates, Etihad and SAS serving Ireland, sending 9,000 text messages from the cabin.

The AeroMobile service is currently available across nine airlines, including Virgin Atlantic, with the number expected to double in the next 12 months.  It has 100% coverage in the UK with EE, Vodafone, Three and 02 all signed up as roaming partners.  www.aeromobile.net
