TAP Air Portugal has selected mobile connectivity provider AeroMobile, a subsidiary of Panasonic Avionics Corporation, to integrate inflight mobile connectivity on its A330-900neo fleet. TAP Air Portugal’s first connected Airbus A330-900neo is already in service.
This launch marks an exciting time for TAP Air Portugal, which is the first airline in the world to operate the next generation A330-900neo aircraft.
The onboard AeroMobile service allows passengers in all cabin classes to use their mobile devices to send and receive text messages, catch up with emails and browse the internet.
Following the successful launch of its first aircraft with inflight mobile connectivity, TAP Air Portugal will add an additional 37 aircraft over the next year, reaching a total of 71 aircraft by 2025. The A330-900neo fleet with inflight mobile connectivity will be deployed on services to Sao Paulo, with four other Brazil destinations launching across 2019.
“We’re delighted to welcome TAP Air Portugal as a customer and to provide mobile connectivity services on their first A330-900neo aircraft. TAP Air Portugal joins our ever-growing fleet of our partner airlines, making inflight mobile services more accessible to travellers than ever before,” said Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile.
