Qatar’s leading telecommunications operator announced an update to its popular roaming service, designed to enhance its customers’ digital lives by allowing them to use their plan allowances while flying.

Ooredoo has added the ONAIR mobile network to its list of roaming partners, meaning Ooredoo Passport, Ooredoo Passport Monthly, Shahry 250 and Qatarna customers can now use their plan roaming allowances for in-flight usage data and stay connected even at 36,000 feet in the air.

Customers need simply connect to the ONAIR Mobile Network when it’s safe to do so, and use their data services as they would on the ground. Usage will be deducted from their regular plan roaming allowances. Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi, Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said of the new launch: “We’re delighted to further extend the benefits of our Ooredoo Passport, Shahry 250 and Qatarna plans with the onAir mobile network. We know staying connected is of vital importance to our customers, even at 36,000 feet in the air, and Ooredoo roaming services will offer them a convenient, value-for-money way to make sure they don’t miss anything while they’re flying.” 

In-Flight roaming is available for all prepaid and post-paid customers via Ooredoo Passport, and using roaming data allowance in Shahry 250 or Qatarna packs.
