February 18, 2016 – SWISS has partnered with mobile network operator, AeroMobile, to allow its passengers, in all cabin classes, to use their mobile devices to call, text and browse the internet at 30,000 feet.
The first fully connected flight entered into service in early February 2016, a Boeing 777-300ER, and SWISS will roll-out further B777 aircraft with inflight connectivity in the coming months.
AeroMobile has roaming agreements with over 320 network operators, allowing passengers from over 145 countries to use their phone inflight. The service is simple to use; passengers simply turn on their mobile device to connect to the network and are billed directly by their mobile operator. Prices are comparable to international roaming rates.
