You are absolutely right that Reliance Jio started offering mobile services on 22 international flights where the plans start as low as Rs.499 per day. Jio has partnered with airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa and Alitalia.

However, Jio is not the first to provide this service because NELCO of the Tata Group is already offering this service on board the Vistara Airline on its London route. This is supposed to be an added facility for international flyers to stay in touch while flying.

At the lowest end, the Rs.499 plan offers 100 minutes of outgoing voice and 100 SMS. It also offers 250 MB of mobile data. There are also higher premium plans available that offer higher levels of data usage.
