DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (14th Feb) launched the world’s first free mobile phone roaming service, in conjunction with Maxroam, which allows passengers who travel on Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares to no longer pay for receiving mobile calls and SMS messages when they travel abroad.
Ryanair’s 78 million passengers can continue to save when making calls and sending SMS messages (or mobile data) with a Maxroam SIM card, which provides a fixed rate of just 29c per minute to make calls and just 9c to send standard text/SMS messages, across 43 European countries.
As part of its exclusive deal with Maxroam, Ryanair released one million free Maxroam ‘received call’ roaming minutes to new and existing customers.
Ryanair’s Sinead Finn said:
“Ryanair delivers the guaranteed lowest fares and with Maxroam we also deliver an unbeatable mobile phone roaming service which allows passengers to receive free calls and SMS messages when abroad, for the first time. Ryanair’s 78 million passengers can also benefit from the cheapest roaming rates in Europe when making calls and sending SMS messages, helping passengers to save even more with Ryanair.”
Maxroam’s Kieran Sexton said:
“Maxroam products dramatically reduce customers’ mobile roaming costs when travelling across Europe. Calls are 40% cheaper than existing European rates and Ryanair passengers can buy a Maxroam SIM, which includes €20 call credit, for just €10 on Maxroam SIM cards can be used anywhere in the world, in a standard GSM mobile phone while iPad and iPhone SIM cards are also available to allow all passengers to save even more with Ryanair.”
MAXROAM is a comprehensive global mobile communications service which was developed to remove the complexity when travelling with mobile communications. We can offer roaming charges that are up to 70% less than domestic operators removing the fear factor when using your mobile abroad. We also offer a range of mobile travel accessories on our online store.
