Make phone calls from above the clouds…

Phone calls from above the clouds

yea, this is soon turning out to be a reality… making phone calls in mid-air 🙂

Plans are underway to allow air passengers to make mobile phone calls at high altitude. So, no longer will requests to switch off mobiles be a familiar part of the take-off routine for air passengers… with a European firm finding a way to make mobile phone usage safe even above the clouds.

The technology is to be operated by an Air France plane for the first time in September 2007 and will then roll out across the world… wondering when I get to travel one of those airlines and use the mobile incessantly. To prevent the phones from interfering with the ground network, the system will only be available above 9000 feet, which is achieved four minutes after take-off and maintained until ten minutes before landing.

This is a OnAir product in collaboration with Airbus and Sita.
