Qatar Airways Now Offers ‘Super Wi-Fi’ in More Aircrafts Flying Across Asia, MENA
Qatar Airways is celebrating the launch of its 100th aircraft to feature high-speed ‘Super Wi-Fi’ connectivity, enabling passengers to stay in touch with families, friends and colleagues while on board, using the fastest broadband service available in the sky.
With its 100th Super Wi-Fi enabled aircraft, Qatar Airways now offers the largest number of aircraft equipped with the most superior high-speed broadband on board in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.
Airbus A350-900 aircraft number A7-ALC became the 100th member of the Qatar Airways fleet to feature the high-speed Super Wi-Fi service using the GX Aviation technology from global mobile satellite communications provider, Inmarsat. The service is being rolled out across the airline’s fleet and since its launch in 2018 has enabled millions of passengers to browse the internet, check social media, stream videos and more, whilst relaxing on board.
Qatar Airways passengers on flights fitted with GX Aviation can receive up to one hour free access to the Super Wi-Fi service, with the ability to purchase full-flight access if more online time is needed.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said that as a leader of innovation within the global aviation industry, Qatar Airways already operates one of the youngest and most technologically-advanced fleet in the skies. Where other airlines are reducing their Wi-Fi offering, Qatar Airways is expanding it.
With connection to our loved ones and friends now more important than ever during these challenging times, we are delighted to work with Inmarsat and its GX Aviation technology to bring high-speed Super Wi-Fi broadband to passengers on board our fleet as part of Qatar Airways’ exceptional five-star service.
According to Inmarsat Aviation President Philip Balaam, they are pleased that GX Aviation inflight broadband has become such an important component of the airline’s extensive fleet. Feedback from passengers has been hugely positive and now, with the service being available on 100 aircraft, even more can enjoy the best connectivity in the skies.
