Qatar Airways passengers can now enjoy free inflight Wi-Fi for the first 15 minutes of their connected flight, courtesy of Ooredoo.
This is to celebrate Ooredoo now being the exclusive three-year sponsor of inflight Wi-Fi across the airline’s fleet.
Qatar Airways says it offers a customer-friendly and easy payment programme, based on the amount of time needed.
One hour of inflight Wi-Fi connectivity is $5US; three hours of connectivity is $10US; and for passengers on longer Qatar Airways flights, a set price of $20US for the duration of their trip is available, regardless of the number of hours used.
Guests in Qatar Airways’ first class cabin on board the airline’s Airbus A380 can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi for the duration of their trip.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways has always prided itself on delivering outstanding in-flight service, superior on-board products, and operational excellence for its passengers and today’s announcement is proof of this on-going commitment.
“We believe on-board shouldn’t mean off-line. As an ambitious and award-winning business we understand the need to stay connected whilst going places. By offering customers the chance to stay connected whilst flying, Qatar Airways is demonstrating its promise to offer a premium service to all customers.
“This partnership really reflects the values at the core of our new, recently unveiled, global brand positioning – ‘Going Places Together’ – and further underpins our commitment to offering the best to our customers.”
Currently the service is available across all connected aircraft and Qatar Airways plans to connect more planes in the near future.
On-board Wi-Fi is part of Qatar Airways’ communications system available on all A380, A350, B787, A319, and select A320 and A330 aircraft.
