British Airways Onboard WiFi – What you need to know!

British Airways New .air WiFi Service

After a long wait British Airways have announced plans to fit 118 of their aircraft with WiFi capabilities. With the retrofit out across the fleet, passengers will be treated to an hour of free browsing on board. BA’s partner Visa are providing this complimentary, for a limited time – quite a novelty the first time you use it!

How Much?

‘I bet this will cost an arm and a leg!’ I hear you cry. Not necessarily, the costs are low comparative to the tech that goes into receiving a WiFi signal on a plane. Prices are £4.99 for ‘Simply Connect’ or £7.99 for ‘Connect Plus’ dependant on how much data you’ll want to use. These options present a great and long awaited plus point for the business traveller.

When?

British Airways advises us that they plan to complete the upgrade to all 118 aircraft over the next two years. The new .air WiFi service will initially be carried out in the summer on selected flights . If you’re lucky enough to be on a BA plane with WiFi running, you’ll be informed when boarding and the service will be available above 10,000 feet.

Why?

This new initiative is part of the airline’s £400M renovation. Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ director of brand and customer experience, said “Staying connected is important to our customers who want to be able to work, browse and stream in the air. They can now look forward to enjoying the latest generation Wi-Fi across our long-haul fleet over the next two years’’.

If you’d like to check if your flight has WiFi so you can stay connected, call us on 0203 805 4599. We’re always happy to help.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Excellent and exceptional service

International travel has become particularly onerous and so it is essential to find agents who can help alleviate the stress of sourcing a competitive price, organising itineraries, booking the travel, accommodation and associated services. YourTravel has provided an exceptional level of service, working with our Company to understand our requirements, tailoring the various flights to ensure the maximum amount of time for our business to be conducted with the least time wasted.

Their representatives have been professional, highly competent and a pleasure to work with, going the extra mile on all occasions. We have experienced excellent service, most particularly from their representative Lauren Townsend, who obtained competitive rates with an exacting itinerary and, importantly, have monitored our recent travels over a two and a half week trip through various time zones to assist in arranging boarding passes and booking seats.

We would highly recommend YourTravel for both business and personal travel and will be using them for our future bookings.
