AeroMobile, in partnership with Panasonic Avionics, has been selected by Aer Lingus to provide 3G inflight network capability on two Airbus A330s.
The 3G expansion coincides with the Irish carrier’s launch of two new routes from its Dublin hub to the USA. The newly-connected aircraft are able to accommodate 317 passengers, 30 in business and 287 in economy, all of whom will be able to access the service.
The AeroMobile service allows passengers to use their own mobile devices to text and browse the internet in flight. Offering 3G connectivity means a faster service and an experience much closer to that on the ground.
“We’re thrilled to announce the continued expansion of our connected fleet from Dublin. The expansion of Aer Lingus’s inflight connectivity service demonstrates the value of providing a better passenger experience on board by allowing them to use their phones as they would on the ground,” remarked Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile.
