From 25 September 2020 for the next 100 days until 2 January 2021, passengers can stay connected with family, friends and colleagues free-of-charge using the Wi-Fi connectivity on board. Qatar Airways now offers the largest number of aircraft equipped with high-speed broadband connectivity in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa

 

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “During these challenging times Qatar Airways continues to lead and innovate, providing our passengers with the five-star experience they have come to expect from the World’s Best Airline. We are delighted to bring high-speed broadband connectivity to all our loyal passengers for the duration of their flights, from departure to arrival.

 

“Not only does this showcase the exceptional five-star Qatar Airways service at a time when other airlines are using the current market challenges as a reason to reduce their Wi-Fi offerings.

 

“It also proves that our mission to connect people around the world does not start and end with just travel. We understand the importance, especially in recent months, of enabling people to be connected at all times, whether on-the-ground or 35,000ft in-the-air.”

 

More than 100 Qatar Airways aircraft have been fitted with the high-speed Super Wi-Fi service, using the award-winning GX Aviation technology from global mobile satellite communications provider, Inmarsat, since the launch of the service in 2018.
