Posted: 03-Mar-2004 [Source: Verizon Wireless]

[Airfone Service for Verizon Wireless allows customers to make and receive in-flight calls and charge them to their Verizon Wireless bills.]

Bedminster, NJ -- Verizon Wireless announced it is teaming up with Verizon Airfone to offer discounted in-flight calls for Verizon Wireless customers. Beginning today, Verizon Wireless frequent flyers can stay connected while in flight for just 10 cents-a-minute when they sign up for the new Airfone Service for Verizon Wireless $10 monthly subscription plan.

Verizon Wireless customers who want to make and receive calls while in flight need only register as a user on a Verizon Airfone handset to make and receive calls for 10 cents-a-minute with a monthly subscription or 69 cents-a-minute with no subscription. Callers dialing the customer's Verizon Wireless phone number will reach them on board any of the more than 2,000 planes served by Verizon Airfone nationwide. Charges will be billed directly to the customer's Verizon Wireless bill.

The significantly discounted services are in line with roaming charges for Verizon Wireless' popular America's ChoiceSM plan. Normally, a standard Airfone voice call is $3.99 to set up plus $3.99 per minute.

Customers can also take advantage of discounted access to JetConnect, a service that provides instant messaging, text messaging; and JetGazette, for up-to-the minute news, stocks, sports and weather delivered to a laptop. JetConnect, normally billed at $5.99 per flight segment, is only $10 per month and gives Verizon Wireless customers unlimited use.

Travelers can activate the feature in flight by following the instructions that will be included on every Verizon Airfone handset, or in advance by visiting any Verizon Wireless Communications Store, by calling customer service at 1-800-2 JOIN IN, or on the Web at This service will be available to Ohio customers in April and to Michigan customers in June.
