Mr. Anupam Vasudev, Chief Marketing Officer, Aircel, said, “The launch of this unmatched product has a careful understanding of our customers in the background, who look for a hassle-free experience when travelling abroad and want to stay connected to their work or friends and family at all times. It brings us great pride, too, to have introduced a yet another industry-first product, that’s also in line with Aircel’s promise of offering some exclusivity to all its subscribers. We’re certain that the product will greatly ease our customers off inconvenience in ways more than one.”

Both, Prepaid and Postpaid customers of Aircel will be able to avail the benefits while roaming on select international operators only.  In order to ensure maximum convenience to subscribers, Aircel has enabled recharging or renewal of the international roaming pack beyond its validity of five days in case one wishes to prolong the stay in the visited country. Furthermore, customers can also have more than one plan activated.
