Panasonic Avionics Corporation subsidiary, AeroMobile, announced today the launch of mobile connectivity onboard Egyptair’s 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

In addition to the onboard Wi-Fi and live TV service, passengers on Egyptair will be able to access the AeroMobile network to connect their roaming-enabled GSM mobile phones to use mobile data services, send and receive SMS messages and emails, and make and receive calls.

Following the successful introduction of its first two aircraft with inflight mobile connectivity in the Spring of 2019, Egyptair are set to complete their roll out through the fall of this year.

The 787-9 fleet with inflight mobile connectivity will serve destinations in Europe, America and Asia during 2019.

“We are pleased to provide mobile connectivity services onboard Egyptair’s B787-9 aircraft. Egyptair has reached an exciting milestone through developing mobile connectivity to its passengers with seamless connectivity in most of the flight. The airline joins our ever-growing connected fleet enabling inflight mobile connectivity to become more accessible to travelers than ever before. We look forward to continue working with the team to provide a great passenger experience.” said Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile, Panasonic Avionics, in today’s announcement.
