New partnership expands and improves connectivity during global travel.

Our partnership with Turkish Airlines is critical for both companies as we seek to bring more value and a seamless travel experience to all global travelers.

Turkish Airlines, which flies to more countries and international destinations than any other airline, and Skyroam, a leading global mobile WiFi company, today announced a new partnership designed to address the struggle of global connectivity that many international travelers face while abroad. Skyroam has connected more than 15 million users worldwide in over 130+ countries, and this innovative new partnership provides Turkish Airlines’ customers access to this premium global network, so they never worry about being connected wherever work, holiday, or personal travel may take them.

Previously, travelers were forced to find, buy and install new SIM cards in each country, pay high roaming fees, or use slow public WiFi networks. Turkish Airlines’ customers can now use a Skyroam Solis mobile hotspot, powered by patented Virtual SIM technology, to connect securely to over 200 local networks in 130+ countries, with just once device and no SIMs.

“We’re thrilled to give today’s traveler an advancement in technology that provides easy access to WiFi and data, and makes their global connectivity easier and more affordable than ever,” said Skyroam President, Eric Plam. “Our partnership with Turkish Airlines is critical for both companies as we seek to bring more value and a seamless travel experience to all global travelers.”

Turkish Airlines customers can rent a Skyroam Solis for three, seven or fourteen days at a time, and up to 24 hours ahead of their trip. Pick up is available in Turkey’s Istanbul airport (IST), Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN), London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Once the trip is complete, customers can simply return the Solis via a provided pre-paid shipping label. Miles&Smiles members can also earn up to 500 miles with each rental.

“Since one of our main goals is to keep Turkish Airlines customers connected during their travels, we are excited to partner with Skyroam under this collaboration,” said Turkish Airlines Acting SVP of Marketing, Arif Ali Gezmisoglu. “Our customers can even earn miles by renting Skyroam devices.”
