Vodafone launches in-flight roaming service
Published in Daily News Egypt on 20 - 09 - 2010

Vodafone Egypt launched an in-flight roaming service aboard around 100 aircraft, available aboard EgyptAir where it is provided in partnership with OnAir, the telecom operator said in a statement.
Vodafone customers can make and receive calls, send and receive SMS, and access the internet on the aircraft during flight as they would on the ground. The service is safe and does not affect the navigation instruments, the statement read.
Vodafone Egypt has partnered with in-flight mobile phone services providers: the first is AeroMobile, operating on Emirates and Malaysia Airlines. Their services are currently available on 79 aircraft traveling to over 200 destinations around the world, including the popular Cairo to Dubai route.
The AeroMobile service is also launching later in the year with Air New Zealand and V Australia. In 2011 the service will also be available onboard Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Cathay Pacific Airways
The second company OnAir is the world's only provider of both GSM services and WiFi based internet WiFi offering voice, e-mail, text services and internet access services on Egypt Air, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Royal Jordanian, Oman Air and Qatar Airways, in addition to Wataniya (Kuwait) Airways, TAP Portugal and British Airways. OnAir is also due to launch its services on Emirates, Air Asia, Libyan Airlines, and TAM.
