Etisalat, Monday announced that its roaming packages (both data and voice) will now include AeroMobile in-flight coverage at no extra charge for business users.
AeroMobile is a UK-based mobile service provider for the aviation industry that provides mobile network for airline passengers to roam in-flight.
With the new in-flight roaming service, Etisalat customers can stay in touch with their business partners wherever they go, answer an important email, check social media, make and receive calls and more during flights.
UAE being an important commercial and transportation center, is a hub to some of the biggest airlines which originate multiple long-haul flights during which business users need to stay connected. With this newly enhanced feature, Etisalat users subscribed to business roaming packs are now able to stay online and talk at affordable rates in-flight on the AeroMobile network at no extra cost.
This means all packages shall remain the same; the only difference is the ability to use in-flight roaming to subscribers of any roaming pack. Currently, Etisalat roaming network covers almost 120 countries for preferred roaming.
AeroMobile was the first to introduce in-flight connectivity in 2008, and currently has agreements with over 340 mobile phone operators across more than 145 countries, including full coverage in the UAE with Etisalat.
