TAP Air Portugal adopts AeroMobile inflight connectivity

Passenger using TAP Portugal connectivity.AeroMobile, a subsidiary of Panasonic Avionics, has announced that TAP Air Portugal has adopted its ‘inflight connectivity’ system for its Airbus A330-900neo.

The onboard  service allows its 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.

The system offers relatively low bit-rate connectivity using AeroMobile’s mobile phone connectivity.

Following the successful launch of its first aircraft with inflight mobile connectivity, the airline will add an additional 37 aircraft over the next year, reaching a total of 71 aircraft by 2025.

The A330-900neo fleet with inflight mobile connectivity will be deployed on services to Sao Paulo, with four other Brazil destinations launching across 2019.

Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile, said: “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 inflight mobile services more accessible to travellers than ever before.”

AeroMobile has roaming agreements with over 350 network operators globally allowing passengers from over 145 countries to use their phone inflight. Since 2008, over 40 million passengers have successfully connected to the AeroMobile network inflight.
