Silverjet launches mobile internet service
Dubai, April 17, 2008
Exclusively business class airline Silverjet today announced the launch of ‘Silverjet Mobile’, a full mobile internet service.
The service enables passengers to access all of the functionality of its website through their mobile devices.
