Recently Reliance Jio announced Jio Postpaid Plus service in India. The company’s aim is to provide Superior post-paid services across segments, entertainment and experience. Soon after launching the plans, the company introduced its in-flight connectivity packs starting at Rs 499. With the launch of these offers the company’s objective is to provide high-speed data access, voice calling and SMS message benefits for inflight communications.
To provide in-flight connectivity Reliance Jio has partnered with Panasonic Avionics Corporation. The company has launched three different in-flight connectivity packages that are applicable to 22 partner airlines. Both prepaid and postpaid users are eligible to take the benefit of this offer. Additionally, the telecom operator has also revised its Rs 1101 and Rs 1,201 international roaming plans along with Rs 1102 and Rs 1,202 IR packs that come with Wi-Fi calling support.
Coming back to the in-flight connectivity packs starting at Rs 499, Rs 699, and Rs 999. All the plans offer one-day validity. The Rs 499 plan will be offering 250mb of data, 100 minutes of outgoing voice call and up to 100 free SMSs. Whereas Rs 699 pack provides 500mb of internet data and Rs 999 pack offers 1GB of internet data. Both the packs also bring 100 minutes of free outgoing calls and 100 free messages. All the three offers do not allow incoming calls, however, it allows inkling SMS at no additional cost.
