Kevin Rogers, CEO of AeroMobile, said: “I am extremely excited to sign this new roaming deal with one of the Middle East’s leading Operators. It underlines the continued growth and importance of inflight mobile connectivity to both airlines and mobile operators."

Ooredoo Spokesperson Mijbil Al-Ayoub, Corporate Communications Senior Director, said: “This innovative partnership with AeroMobile means we are the first mobile operator in Kuwait to offer customers unlimited data roaming while inflight, as part of our Passport roaming package.”
