Aeromobile Heads High With Virgin Atlantic


June 16, 2010 – Aeromobile, the world’s leading provider of in-flight mobile communications for passengers, is providing its award-winning service to Virgin Atlantic’s newest aircraft.

Virgin’s new fleet of 10 Airbus A330s, which will come into service early next year, will initally be installed with AeroMobile technology post-aircraft delivery

It will enable Virgin Atlantic’s passengers to make calls and send text messages or email from 35,000 feet and they will join the more than 2.4 million air travellers who have already used the AeroMobile services since its launch in April 2008 – the first time it was commercially available.

Bjorn-Taale Sandberg CEO of AeroMobile said ‘This milestone announcement with Virgin Atlantic underlines our position as the most successful in-flight GSM service in the market today. The majority of Airbus aircraft in service today with in-flight cellular connectivity are served by AeroMobile ‘

“As ground-breaking innovators who put passenger experience at the forefront of what we do, Virgin Atlantic and AeroMobile make for perfect partners.

“We are proud that Virgin Atlantic has chosen us for their next big step into the future of in-flight passenger experience. We are both used to pushing the boundaries on behalf of our customers so it’s a great breakthrough for us.

“We are now achieving real scale for our business, underlining that our technology is now recognised by both passengers and airlines is a ‘must have’.”

AeroMobile’s service on Virgin’s incoming fleet is delivered through eXPhone and forms part of Panasonic Avionics’ eX2 IFEC platform. Virgin Atlantic is one of the first European carriers to adopt this technology. The eXPhone system will initially be operating over Inmarsat Swiftbroadband and fully supports Virgin Atlantic’s desire to move towards full connectivity with Panasonic Avionics on future aircraft.
