Digi has just announced its partnership with Malindo Air to provide in-flight Internet roaming for its customers. Digi customers will now be able to enjoy Internet on board any Malindo flight.
According to Digi, users need to make sure their device is turned on and ‘Airplane Mode’ is switched off. Next, turn on ‘Data Roaming’, and the device will automatically connect to the AeroMobile network (the network name might differ on different devices). Upon successful connection, users will then receive a welcome text message from AeroMobile. Once that is done, make sure that Wi-Fi is turned off and the user can now make calls, text, and even surf the web.
Malindo Air launched the AeroMobile service back in May 2015, and it is only available on flights to and from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Digi’s in-flight Internet roaming on board Malindo flights will cost RM32/day and it is only available on selected B737-900 aircraft.
Frequent flyers who use Digi’s roaming services would definitely find this feature an added bonus. That being said, users need to know that the service is not guaranteed as it is subject to airline scheduling, so customers will need to check onboard announcements for connectivity options. Other than Digi, Maxis is also supported on AeroMobile’s platform on Malindo Air flights.
