The new partnership will expand on du’s popular international roaming plans – ‘Roaming data bundle on preferred networks’ –which currently enable subscribers to use their phones in 86 different countries for the same price as being at home.
“At du, we are constantly seeking innovative ways to transform the connected experience for our valued customer bases,” says Fahad Al Hassawi, deputy CEO–Telco Services, EITC. “This partnership has literally taken our services and telco experience to new heights, and we are thrilled to be expanding our connected offerings to enrich our subscribers’ journeys abroad.”

Subscribers will be able to browse the internet and stay connected, send and receive texts, listen to voicemail, and make and receive calls on AeroMobile equipped aircraft at no extra cost, provided customers have the eligible roaming data package active.
