Five Airlines Commence Boarding With Aeromobile In 2010


September 14, 2010 – Five carriers have announced this year that they will install the Panasonic Avionics – AeroMobile eXPhone system, representing further commitments of over 160 aircraft.

2010 has been a year of continuing successes for AeroMobile, with growing operational experience matched by a raft of new customer commitments from Virgin Atlantic, Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Turkish Airlines and Air New Zealand.

The combined commitment of Cathay Pacific and subsidiary Dragonair also represents a milestone for the industry. A commitment to install in-flight cellular, live internet and TV services across all narrow and wide body aircraft including the Airbus A321 family.

AeroMobile’s total announced customer commitments now stand at 400 aircraft from ten carriers, spanning all available aviation satellite technologies. Seventy per cent of these commitments leverage Panasonic Avionics’ established and proven Ku solution, eXConnect.

AeroMobile’s CEO, Bjorn-Taale Sandberg says: “AeroMobile is now an established service, and the choice of many major international carriers. Our goal has always been to set the industry benchmark with an innovative and effective service offering, and we will continue to develop AeroMobile in the months ahead.”

Over the next six months, AeroMobile’s award-winning services will be launched on six major flag carriers together with a range of complimentary connectivity offerings including broadband internet and live TV – all together with its partner, Panasonic Avionics Corporation.

V Australia will launch later this year with the world’s first integrated IFE and cellular platform, taking the industry to a new level of innovation. Lufthansa is finalising launch plans for in-flight cellular, live internet and TV services.

By the end of 2010, AeroMobile is forecast to be operating on 91 wide body aircraft.
