Question: What is in flight roaming?
Answer: A service which enables customers to stay connected whilst travelling by air and is available on aircrafts in conjunction with Aero-Mobile. This unique service enables all postpaid subscribers who are activated for international roaming; make use of their mobile phones whilst on the plane. Customers can make & receive calls, send receive SMS and browse the internet while in the air on international flights.
Question: When Can I use the services?
Answer: The cabin crew will make an announcement to let you know when you can turn your phone on and use the service. The AeroMobile network becomes available when the aircraft has reached 6000 meters above the ground. The network is available throughout the cruise phase of the flight but phones must be switched off for take-off and landing.
Question: Is it safe? Why can we now use phones in-flight?
Answer: You can only use your mobile phone on an aircraft which has been equipped with the AeroMobile Network. Specially certified hardware has been installed inside these aircraft to make it safe to use mobile phones in-flight.
Question: What should I see on my device?
Answer: Once you’ve turned on your device you should connect to the AeroMobile network fairly quickly. AeroMobile will be displayed as the network provider and you will receive a welcome text message. You can then make and receive calls, texts, email and browse just as you would on the ground.
Question: Can I use my phone at in-flight? 
Answer: While we cannot guarantee coverage when you're travelling in-flight, you may be able to pick up some in-flight service providers. We recommend you to get in touch with the airlines directly in order to check whether the system will be available on their specific flight.
Note: You will need to disable Wi-Fi connectivity to use mobile data. Some applications send and receive data in the background (i.e. emails, weather updates, etc….) this can usually be managed within the application settings.
