Posted 19 October 2016 · Add Comment

Panasonic Avionics (Panasonic) and AeroMobile have announced the global availability of the new 3G eXPhone system.

The technology builds on success of eXPhone service, which is already installed on over 450 aircraft worldwide.

The announcement follows increasing airline adoption of the eXPhone platform and increased customer demand for on-board mobile connectivity. The newly launched 3G technology delivers a richer and faster passenger experience and enables access to a greater number of applications.

The inflight 3G network, which is operated over Panasonic’s eXConnect service, enables a range of services much closer to those experienced on the ground. Faster browsing, bigger attachments, quicker posts, more responsive apps and gaming, all lead to a better connected cabin experience taking travel into a new era. 

David Bruner, vice president of global communications services, Panasonic Avionics Corporation said: “Our continued partnership with AeroMobile is testament to the eXPhone platform and how it enables airlines to offer mobile connectivity in the aircraft cabin that is easy and simple to connect to and use. 

“The technology’s continued success demonstrates how Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity are totally complimentary services, consistently doubling the number of connected users in the cabin and revenue opportunities for the airline.” 

Kevin Rogers, chief executive officer at AeroMobile added: “Passengers carry different devices, have different connectivity needs and have different payment preferences. Passengers each have their own “connected world.” 

“We are all used to choice on the ground – choice between mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity - and we are proud that our partnership with Panasonic continues to enable passengers to access different services at different times and pay in different ways.”
