Turkish Airlines will introduce its new in-flight mobile connectivity through “eXPhone” for an uninterrupted communication on board with effect from April, 2017.
The airline will offer this mobile internet connectivity by eXPhone service as an extension of Wi-Fi and live TV availability on its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft.
By using this service, passengers will be able to send text messages (excluding voice messages), check their e-mails and browse internet (including social media platforms) with their own mobile phones.
According to the airline, the eXPhone service, offered in close cooperation with Panasonic/AeroMobile, has successfully been tested on board during a flight with the participations of relevant authorities, via one of our cabin attendant’ mobile phone.
The eXPhone service will be billed by the passengers’ mobile phone operators, and the prices will vary depending on their individual roaming contracts.
