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

Richard is very responsive. For more than two years he has been arranging my flights within Europe.

At this stage, I must mention that the work I am tasking him with is very difficult. Often I notify Richard briefly before I need a flight or a re-arrangement. My schedule is a mix of long term and short term arrangements, which sometimes are cancelled or postponed. Richard manages to get me on feasible flights and I always count on him. He is very reliable and I see him as a problem solver.

Even when the pressure is on, Richard remains an accountable and reliable solution provider. He always goes by the books and doesn’t take short-cuts. I like working with Richard, who hasn’t dropped the ball, no matter which problem I tasked him with.

He got me on time to Bilbao last week, although EW was messing around with my extra payment for the luggage, until the gate was closed.

Another time he got me back to Düsseldorf from Stockholm, after a couple of rearrangements due to a short term cancelling of a scheduled appointment.

Richard seems to use the whole runaway of tools and processes in order to get the job done. I am a happy client.
