Dhiraagu, the Maldives operator, has introduced the AeroMobile service for its subscribers. AeroMobile is a mobile roaming service on aircrafts enabling the subscribers to make calls or send SMS when roaming. Registration is not required for the AeroMobile service, and charges will be billed to the subscriber’s Dhiraagu mobile bill as roaming charges.
The service will also be available for MVR 46.90/minute for outgoing calls to the Maldives, MVR 83.00/minute for incoming calls from anywhere and MVR 10.54 for each SMS sent. While mobiles are still required to be switched off during take-off and landing, subscribers onboard AeroMobile equipped flights will be advised by the cabin crew when they may use their mobiles.
