Airtext solves the problem of staying connected electronically to business, friends and family without the high cost of a traditional internet option. Airtext allows 16 passengers the ability to send and receive SMS messages anywhere in the world for just 5 cents. On the ground or in the air. Using the Iridium Next Satellite Network, we have designed a product that allows connectivity through your cell phone while on the airplane.

Using new technology BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) found in modern phones, the passengers open a free application loaded on their phone giving them access to Airtext. The hardware consists of a small “paperback” sized FAA-approved Airtext box weighing about 1 pound that is installed on the airplane and connects to the existing iridium phone antenna found on most airplanes.
