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.
