Passengers can now use Aeromobile service to enjoy high-speed data
Through its subsidiary Aeromobile, Panasonic Avionics announced today that AT&T is adding access to inflight mobile phone service through its lead travel product: AT&T International Day Pass™. By joining forces with mobile operators around the world to include inflight roaming the company will deliver end-to-end connectivity to airline passengers and improve the travel experience.
John Wade, Vice President of Inflight Connectivity at Panasonic Avionics said: “We are delighted to partner with AT&T and provide a new dimension to staying in touch for their customers. We have seen mobile network operators around the globe — especially the Middle East, Europe, and Asia — launch compelling inflight retail offers, and we’re excited that operators in the U.S. are now embracing the overseas inflight connectivity market.”
Passengers that have added AT&T International Day Pass (“IDP”) to their personal devices can use their mobile devices on aircraft equipped with Panasonic Avionics mobile solutions for the same daily fee as they would be charged in any other IDP destination. With IDP, passengers can connect to the Aeromobile service and enjoy high-speed data, calls and texting as they do on their plans at home for $10/day. Additional lines used the same day only pay a $5 daily fee, according to the release.
The development follows an increase in data consumption across Panasonic Avionics’ inflight mobile network in 2022 when compared to pre-pandemic levels.
