Virgin Flights To Allow Mobile Phone Calls

Virgin Atlantic, a fleet of planes which fly across the world from a range of British airports, including Edinburgh, London Heathrow and Manchester, will be kitted out with the latest in-flight entertainment systems through a close partnership with Panasonic. Revealed at a press conference as the company celebrated its tenth year of flying to Las Vegas, Sir Richard explained that being able to watch live broadcasts would be a huge step for travel entertainment.

Meanwhile Mr Branson also revealed that the partnership with Panasonic could result in passengers being able to utilise mobile phone services, email, social networking and the Internet. Whilst these services would be pay-per-use, he added that the technological advances would allow travelers far cheaper deals than the services currently provided. Virgin said they were to overhaul the entire fleet over the next three years, offering passengers a next generation of entertainment.
