Singapore’s M1 Limited (M1) says its customers can now stay connected and share pictures, stream videos and keep tabs on e-mail during their flights, with its unlimited inflight data roaming service.

At S$25 per day, roaming subscription customers can enjoy unlimited data roaming on 18 airlines, including Singapore Airlines, British Airways and Qatar Airways, where in-flight connectivity is available and when they are logged on to M1’s preferred in-flight network – OnAir with Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband.

M1 also has a network lock feature to protect customers from unintended usage and charges on non-preferred networks.

P. Subramaniam, Chief Marketing Officer, M1, said: “Now we can stay connected wherever we go, even while in the air. With our affordable in-flight data roaming service, travellers can stay in touch with their loved ones, answer important e-mail or simply get the latest social media updates.”

The full list of SITA OnAir-equipped airlines with M1’s in-flight data roaming service includes: Aeroflot, Oman Air, AZAL, Philippine Airlines, British Airways, Qatar Airways, Cebu Pacific Air, Royal Jordanian, Egypt Air, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways, Kuwait Airways, Iberia, Thai Airways, Libyan Airlines and Sri Lankan Airlines.

Roaming subscription customers are charged S$0.20 per 10KB, capped at S$25/day. Pay-per-use customers are charged S$0.24 per 10KB, capped at S$30/day.
