Etisalat Global Business Roaming packages – both data and voice – will now include both Aeromobile and SITAOnAir in-flight coverage, providing business users increased options and uncompromised connectivity when they are airborne. All roaming packages shall remain the same for all subscribers with the ability to use in-flight roaming at no extra charge.

Currently, Etisalat’s roaming network covers 190 global destinations.

Said Salvador Anglada, Etisalat’s chief business officer: “This exclusive proposition is in line with Etisalat’s commitment to offer innovative and convenient communication services to our roaming business users. We recognise that the majority of business travellers need to remain connected and productive on-the-go, including roaming while on board a flight.

“With Aeromobile and SITAOnAir as our partners, we are now able to provide expanded coverage across all airlines with on-boarding connectivity, allowing our subscribers to stay online, make and receive calls, check social media, and more during flights at no extra cost using Etisalat’s Global Business Roaming packs.”
