Virgin Atlantic offers in-flight mobile calls13 May 2012
Virgin Atlantic has become the first airline in Britain to offer in-flight mobile phone calls, texts and web access in the air.
The service will initially be available on Virgin’s new Airbus A330 planes flying from London to New York but will be available on 17 planes on at least 10 routes by the end of the year.
In-flight mobile access will be provided by AeroMobile, which is part-owned by Panasonic. Virgin will charge passengers approximately the same as normal roaming charges.
