Through its subsidiary Aeromobile Communications, Panasonic Avionics joins forces with AT&T to include in-flight roaming.
Panasonic Avionics passengers will now be able to enjoy high-speed data, calling and texting on the carrier’s flights. The agreement will enable end-to-end connectivity for airline passengers.
🗣️ In the words of John Wade, vice president of in-flight connectivity at Panasonic: “We have seen mobile network operators around the world, especially in the Middle East, Europe and Asia, launch compelling in-flight retail offerings and we are excited that operators in the US are now embracing the in-flight connectivity market overseas.”
👉 How does it work?
Passengers who added AT&T’s International Day Pass (“IDP”) to their lines can use their mobile devices on aircraft equipped with Panasonic Avionics mobile solutions for only the same daily rate they would be charged at any other IDP destination.
