Qatar Airways is now offering 100 days of free on-board Super Wi-Fi connectivity to all passengers.
The offer is in celebration of the airline equipping more than 100 of its state-of-the-art aircraft with high-speed broadband.
From 25 September 2020 until 2 January 2021, passengers can stay connected free-of-charge using the Wi-Fi connectivity on board.
Qatar now has the largest number of aircraft with high-speed broadband connectivity in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.
More than 100 Qatar Airways aircraft are using the high-speed Super Wi-Fi service.
They use GX Aviation technology from global mobile satellite communications provider, Inmarsat.
Qatar Airways passengers on flights with GX Aviation usually receive up to one hour free onboard connectivity. They can buy more time.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker:
“During these challenging times Qatar Airways continues to lead and innovate, providing our passengers with the five-star experience they have come to expect from the World’s Best Airline. We are delighted to bring high-speed broadband connectivity to all our loyal passengers for the duration of their flights, from departure to arrival.
“Not only does this showcase the exceptional Qatar Airways service at a time when other airlines are using the current market challenges as a reason to reduce their Wi-Fi offerings.
“It also proves that our mission to connect people around the world does not start and end with just travel. We understand the importance, especially in recent months, of enabling people to be connected at all times, whether on-the-ground or 35,000ft in-the-air.”
Qatar Airways first announced their plans for high-speed wi-fi onboard in 2017.
