Emirates expands inflight Wi-Fi offering

Emirates has expanded its free inflight Wi-Fi service with rates to suit all flyers.

Effective immediately, all Emirates Skywards Platinum and Gold members can have free unlimited Wi-Fi during their flight, regardless of their class of travel. This privilege also applies to all Emirates Skywards members travelling in first and business class.  In addition, economy class customers and non-Skywards members can enjoy 20MB of free data usage within the first two hours of log in, double the current 10MB free being offered.

“Emirates has made significant investments in our inflight connectivity. Today, Wi-Fi services are available on over 200 of our aircraft, and it is a service that Emirates continues to subsidise heavily,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates vice president and chief operations officer.

Additional data can be purchased in 150MB or 500MB blocks, with tiered discounts for Skywards Silver and Blue members.
