AeroMobile, a subsidiary of Panasonic Avionics Corporation, have added TAP Air Portugal to its connected fleet.
The airline’s first connected Airbus A330-900neo entered into service in December 2018.
The on-board AeroMobile service allows TAP Air Portugal passengers in all cabin classes to use their mobile devices to send and receive SMS, catch up with emails and browse the internet from 20,000 feet.
Following the launch of its first aircraft with in-flight mobile connectivity, TAP Air Portugal will add an additional 37 aircraft over the next year, reaching a total of 71 aircraft by 2025.
The A330-900neo fleet with in-flight mobile connectivity will be deployed on services to Sao Paulo, with four other Brazil destinations launching across 2019.
“We’re delighted to welcome TAP Air Portugal as a customer and to provide mobile connectivity services on their first A330-900neo aircraft. TAP Air Portugal joins our ever-growing fleet of our partner airlines, making in-flight mobile services more accessible to travellers than ever before.” said Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile.
