[Avionics Magazine 10-10-2016] In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) provider AeroMobile, in partnership with Panasonic Avionics, is expanding its 3G in-flight network with the connection of two Aer Lingus A330s. The 3G expansion coincides with the Irish national carrier launching two new routes from its Dublin hub to Bradley International and Newark airports in the U.S.

The newly connected aircraft are able to accommodate 317 passengers, 30 in business and 287 in economy, all of whom will be able to access the service. The 3G roll out will begin on the two new A330s, bringing the total connected Aer Lingus fleet to 10 aircraft. The AeroMobile service allows passengers to use their own mobile devices to text and browse the internet during the flight.
