PAL to offer in-flight calling and WiFi internet

Philippine Airlines has announced that they will soon start offering in-flight calling and WiFi internet connection to its passengers for select Airbuses.


These in-flight services are made possible through PAL’s partnership with OnAir, a Geneva-based in-flight telecoms provider. “By mid-year”, passengers of PAL’s Airbus A330-343s and Boeing 777-300ERs will soon be able to make calls and surf the internet during flights.


“As the country’s leading airline, we must enable our passengers to stay in touch during flights. Connectivity is an absolute requirement for today’s travellers,” said Ramon S. Ang, PAL President and Chief Operating Officer.

Last year, Cebu Pacific also broke the news about in-flight WiFi but implementation was scheduled for 3rd quarter of 2013. Looks like PAL will be ahead of them

    Now, if this article mentioned that the in-flight Wifi service was FREE, it would likely be an April fools article. But since there is no mention of it being free, it’s likely legit.
