Guests flying Virgin Australia will soon be able to be better connected than ever before as the airline is set to introduce inflight Wi-Fi on both its international and domestic fleets.
As of mid-2017 Virgin Australia’s Boeing 737-800s, 777s and Airbus A330s will be equipped with the new inflight wi-fi service.
Virgin Australia Group Chief Executive John Borghetti made the announcement:
“Inflight wi-fi has the potential to transform air travel as we know it. We are determined to give Virgin Australia customers the best possible combined connectivity and entertainment experience in the air," Mr Borghetti said.
““As well as providing access to email and social media, inflight wi-fi will improve the travel experience by providing guests with up-to-date information about connecting flights and their travel plans.
“We believe our inflight wi-fi service will be popular with business travellers but also have widespread appeal for all our guests by enabling them to stay in touch and access the internet through their journey.
“Our team is building what we think will be one of the world’s leading connectivity and entertainment networks, and we will work with strategic technology partners to offer our guests a truly personalised experience."
More information regarding the new service is set to be released at the end of 2016.
