WiFi is everywhere, from cafes to bus stops, trains to airports, it’s a service that people on the go value highly.
Unfortunately the WiFi craze hasn’t reached its fullest potential yet and we can’t wait for the day it’s included (for free) in the flights of the future.
Can you get WiFi on a plane?
WiFi is available in the air depending on the airline you’re flying with. Many airlines, like British Airways, offer WiFi for a small fee, but there are a handful of airlines that have free WiFi onboard, like Emirates and Turkish Airlines.
Though frequent fliers have made their pleas to the airlines to offer onboard internet, when the service is available it isn’t always up to par with the tech-savvy traveller’s needs…
An increasing number of airlines like Finnair, Srilankan Airlines, Kuwait Airways, TAAG Angola Airlines, and WestJet have announced that they’ll soon be implementing WiFi on their planes. However, there’s still a long way to go when it comes to the quality of WiFi offered in the sky. Exorbitant pricing and slow speeds that would make even a snail yawn are deterring fliers from considering purchasing internet aboard.
At the moment only eight airlines offer free inflight WiFi: Emirates, JetBlue, Norwegian, Turkish Airlines, Air China, Philippine Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines and Nok Air.
