Currently, passengers of aircrafts cannot be contacted in the aircraft over phone. The use of cell phones is not allowed on board of aircrafts. Only outgoing calls can be made by using the in-aircraft satellite phones. The idea is to route calls which are directed towards the passenger’s cell phone to the in-aircraft satellite phone.
