Premium passengers of Singapore Airlines will be in for a treat, as the airline has vastly expanded its free wi-fi benefit.
The list of passengers and aircraft types has been increased. The airline is giving away free wi-fi to passengers.
It is now available on all of Singapore Airlines' planes. The only planes that don't offer this are the ones that don't have wi-fi.
In the past, the airline offered unlimited free wi-fi in Suites and first class, and 100MB of free data for members of the club. Going from 100MB of data to unlimited data will make a huge difference for passengers. The airline used to have restrictions on the types of aircraft where free wi-fi was available.
There is no published end date for the current trial version of the service. The airline says it will monitor and assess the needs and preferences of its customers during the trial, and evaluate the commercial, operational and technical aspects of providing complimentary in-flight wi-fi to its customers.
Singapore Airlines has made a lot of progress when it comes to its inflight wi-fi offerings. There was a story about how someone racked up $1,200 in wi-fi charges on a flight when the airline had On Air.
Not only has Singapore Airlines upgraded its systems to improve bandwidth and speeds, but it has also greatly improved its wi-fi pricing and complimentary offerings. Most of the time, a full flight pass won't cost more than 15 dollars.
Premium passengers with no data caps can now use the internet for free. There aren't many airlines that offer free wi-fi in business class.
First and business class passengers can now get unlimited free wi-fi. This isn't an end date. It looks like the airline is trying to make this a permanent feature.
