Panasonic Avionics Corporation subsidiary, AeroMobile announced the launch of mobile connectivity onboard EGYPTAIR Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
With this launch, EGYPTAIR believes it has achieved a major milestone by initiating the deployment of mobile and internet connectivity across its entire fleet of Dreamliner aircraft. In addition to the onboard Wi-Fi and live TV service, passengers will be able to access the AeroMobile network to connect their roaming-enabled GSM mobile phones to use mobile data services, send and receive SMS messages and emails, and make and receive calls.
Following the successful introduction of its first two aircraft with inflight mobile connectivity in Spring 2019, EGYPTAIR says they are set to complete their roll out through Autumn 2019.
The B787-9 fleet with inflight mobile connectivity will serve destinations including Europe, America and Asia during 2019.
The airline says connectivity is an increasingly important part of their inflight experience. The airline says it is now able to offer passengers a similar connectivity experience to that which they enjoy on the ground, in the air. Through these connectivity services, the airline says it is “providing industry-leading services to its passengers, with even more choice, convenience and added value.”
“We are pleased to provide mobile connectivity services onboard EGYPTAIR’s B787-9 aircraft. EGYPTAIR has reached an exciting milestone through developing mobile connectivity to its passengers with seamless connectivity in most of the flight. The airline joins our ever-growing connected fleet enabling inflight mobile connectivity to become more accessible to travelers than ever before. We look forward to continue working with the team to provide a great passenger experience.” said Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile, Panasonic Avionics.
