Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines says it will soon offer passengers the option of staying connected at 35,000 feet, including via cell phone.

Passengers will be able to make and receive voice calls, send text messages with GSM-compatible phones and send and receive messages on Smartphone and Blackberry devices, the airline says.

The carrier has signed a multi-million deal with in-flight connectivity provider OnAir, and plans to debut onboard communication options which also include access to Wi-Fi, as early as the first half of next year.
