EE Onboard with Mobile Use During Air Travel

EEs 26m customers will now be able to make calls, text and browse the internet on plane journeys after the company signed a deal with AeroMobile.

AeroMobile already has more than 220 agreements with mobile phone operators around the world, including O2, Three and Vodafone.

Customers of the four main opertors simply need to connect to the AeroMobile network while onboard to use their handsets. More than 120,000 UK-based passengers have already used the service this year, sending 175,000 texts and making 25,000 calls.
