Lufthansa has launched its in-flight mobile phone service allowing passengers to use their own mobile devices during long-haul flights.
The German carrier, which already has eight aircraft with mobile connectivity, will roll out the service across its entire long-haul fleet of more than 100 aircraft later this year.
The AeroMobile network, which allows passengers to roam just as they would abroad, is already available across selected A330s, flying from Munich and Frankfurt to North America and the Middle East.
AeroMobile has roaming agreements with more than 240 mobile phone operators worldwide, including T-Mobile, Vodafone and 02.
Lufthansa said prices will be “similar” to ‘rest of world’ terrestrial roaming rates.
AeroMobile’s CEO, Kevin Rogers, said: "It's great news that Lufthansa will be rolling out AeroMobile connectivity on their entire fleet this year. We know that passengers are keen to keep their mobile phones on in-flight and Lufthansa clearly recognises the value of offering this service."The service will give travellers the flexibility to use their mobile devices as much or as little as they like during a flight, whether it's to send an SMS to a loved one, keep on top of emails or update their Facebook status."
