Shah Alam (18 December 2015) — Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) today announced a partnership with Malindo Air that will give passengers the convenience of surfing the Internet during selected flights. With the assistance of AeroMobile Communications Limited, Digi postpaid users can now easily get in touch with their loved ones en-route to their destinations.
“Digi is committed in constantly improving our services. This service, coupled with our widest 4G LTE network, connects Malaysians with high-speed internet services even when travelling. Through this partnership with Malindo Air, our customers would be able to use their mobile devices onboard, empowering them to change the way they work, learn, play and live and provide them seamless connectivity,” said Chan May Ling, Digi’s Head of Marketing Services.
The service, available on selected Malindo Air Boeing 737-900ER aircrafts via the AeroMobile mobile service, mainly flies to Mumbai, Delhi, Amritsar, Kochin, Trichy, Trivandrum, Kathmandu, Perth, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Bali and Bangkok.
