Airline to roll out mobile services
23 April 2009 — 10:02 AM
Ryanair has said the recent boost it has given a number of its Rome-based flights could be extended to other areas in the near future.
From this week, consumers with the latest phones will be able to use their devices on five of the Irish carrier's planes based at the city's Ciampino Airport.
However, the company announced this is not where the services end and, in fact, it plans to roll out similar facilities across its 180-plus fleet of international planes.
Speaking in Rome, Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary said this could take place over the next 18 months.
"This service will allow passengers [ ] to keep in touch with the office, family or friends while travelling. We expect customer demand for this service to grow rapidly," he added.
Ryanair recently launched a poll asking if it should charge extra for passengers over a certain weight.
