Digi has just announced a partnership with Malindo Air to keep flyers connected while on a plane. The pair have also contracted the help of AeroMobile Communications Limited to provide passengers with the convenience of in-flight internet. This unique service allows Digi postpaid users to stay connected with their loved ones, even when they are in the plane en-route.

The partnership is part of Digi’s plan to expand and provide a wider 4G LTE coverage, which to date covers a total of 60% of our country’s population.

“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 new service will be available for selected Malindo Air’s Boeing 737-900ER aircrafts courtesy of AeroMobile’s mobile service, for flights to Mumbai, Delhi, Amritsar, Kochin, Trichy, Trivandrum, Kathmandu, Perth, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Bali and Bangkok.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Malindo Air, Chandran Rama Muthy, said “We are excited to unveil this partnership with Digi as part of our continued enhancements on overall customer experience. We look forward to bringing more functionality to our digital platforms through engaging and intuitive functions in order to make our guests’ journey a remarkable overall experience from the moment they book their flight”.

People who are on holiday often want to stay connected, so that they can update their social media accounts even on the go, while business travellers would want constant access to their emails. “We are happy to be in partnership with Malindo Air and AeroMobile to cater to these customers’ needs,” Chan said.

To use the new service, Digi postpaid customers will have to pay promotional rate of RM32 per day.
