AeroMobile connects its 100th aircraft

Panasonic Avionics (Panasonic) subsidiary AeroMobile has added 100th aircraft to its 3.5G mobile network. With 60 percent of airlines now offering 3.5G inflight connectivity, users of the AeroMobile service grew by 57 percent between 4Q16 and 1Q17.

The AeroMobile service allows passengers to use their own mobile devices to text, make calls, listen to voicemail and browse the internet while inflight. The service is easy to use with no onboard payment or registration; passengers simply turn on their mobile device to connect to the network and are billed directly by their mobile operator.

“The milestone of 100 3.5G connected aircraft is testament to the continued airline adoption of the service and strong passenger demand,” Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile commented. “We have seen rapid growth in the 3.5G service and already 60 percent of our airline partners are rolling it out. In 2017 alone, 3.5G connected aircraft have already flown to 127 destinations in 65 countries.”
