Singapore Airlines is going to begin providing free Wi-Fi to all passengers in flight. Whether you’re seated in First/Suites, Business, Premium Economy, or Economy, staying connected will be on the house starting on July 1st.
This change will be across Singapore Airlines’ entire fleet with the exception of seven Boeing 737-800s that it operates on select short-haul routes. Customers need to enter their KrisFlyer membership number when they book through Manage Booking or at check-in. If a passenger is not a member, they can sign up on board and receive complimentary Wi-Fi.
Singapore Airlines has been offering passengers in First/Suites and Business Class free access since February and starting soon, all passengers will have this complimentary offering.
Yeoh Phee Teik, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President of Customer Experience, commented:
In today’s increasingly hyper-connected world, high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity is one of the most important requirements for our customers. Giving them access to free unlimited Wi-Fi is yet another milestone in SIA’s continuous effort to offer an exceptional end-to-end travel experience. With this enhanced offering, our customers will be empowered to stay connected, entertained, and productive, even at 36,000 feet in the sky.”
This is in line with what Delta Air Lines and Etihad are currently offering and great to see with Singapore Airlines since it operates some of the world’s longest flights. Yes, you’ll need to provide your data, but that’s a small price to pay to stay connected at 35,000 feet.
Anthony’s Take: I hope more airlines roll out free Wi-Fi. It’s about time that this service no longer costs passengers and I have no issues with providing my information for the free access.
