V Australia to offer trans-pacific connectivity
March 20, 2008

VAustralia, the new Australia-based international airline (part of the Virgin Blue Group of Airlines), will install the Panasonic eXPhone system incorporating AeroMobile inflight technology on its new Boeing 777 aircraft.

The service — set to launch in December, initially with direct daily flights between Sydney and Los Angeles — will let passengers send and receive SMS text messages via their mobile phones, GPRS data devices, and mobile-data-enabled PDAs inflight exactly as they are used on the ground.

V Australia and AeroMobile are working closely with the regulatory and government authorities in Australia and the US to gain the necessary approvals.
