Turkish Airlines to intro Aeromobile in ‘early 2008’
January 16, 2008


Turkish Airlines beginning in early 2008 will offer AeroMobile’s inflight connectivity service on one Airbus 340 aircraft.

The service will let passengers use their mobile phones and personal Wi-Fi-enabled devices inflight to access voice, text messaging, and GPRS data services, including “push-e-mail” (real-time, “always-on”) applications.

AeroMobile will be launched on Turkish Airlines’ principal international routes, including flights within Europe and the Middle East. AeroMobile has received appropriate telecommunications regulatory approvals for these regions.

Through extensive passenger research, Turkish Airlines found a strong preference for the introduction of these services.

AeroMobile’s technology ensures passengers’ mobile phones operate at their minimum power settings, providing their safe use on the aircraft and avoiding interference to ground telecoms networks.

Cabin crew can control the system at all times. AeroMobile’s system has been in service on domestic flights within Australia since April 2007 as part of an evaluation project supporting GSM text messaging and GPRS data services. More than 19,000 passengers have used their personal phones on 1,200+ flights to date during this project.
