A passenger on a flight with Emirates Airlines has clocked up the 100,000th call made via an AeroMobile in-flight system.

The Singaporean man made the call on Sunday (February 15th) at 36,000 feet, making history and showing the increasing popularity of services which allow passengers to make calls while in the air.

Indeed, more than 30 per cent of people on Emirates flights equipped with the AeroMobile facility make use of it, the company said.

AeroMobile chief executive Bjorn-Taale Sandberg commented: “The sharp increase is not due only to the wider availability as our system is rolled out across the Emirates fleet, but the acceptance from passengers of what a valuable and stable service it is.”

Patrick Brannelly, a spokesperson for Emirates, added that making in-flight calls is getting as natural as watching films via the seat-back TV screens.

Last month, Emirates was named the best airline flying to the Middle East and Asia, Africa and Australasia at the Globe Travel Awards in London.
