How It Works

  • The inflight roaming service is supported by select airlines. Hence you would need to view a list of participating airlines (see below) to confirm if the service is available on the airline you are traveling with.
  • Where it is confirmed that service is available on your travel airline, you will be required to turn on your phone and also turn off airplane mode after take-off and at the instruction of cabin crew. 
  • You will need to access your phone settings to manually search for network and register on Aeromobile.
  • We will send you a welcome message via SMS to provide detailed information on applicable inflight roaming rates.
  • You can then enjoy voice, SMS, and data service but must ensure that there is sufficient airtime or credit limit to do so.
