Qatar Airways

In celebration of the airline equipping more than 100 of its aircraft with high-speed broadband, Qatar Airways is now offering all passengers 100 days of free on-board Super WiFi connectivity.

From today (September 25), for the next 100 days, until January 2, 2021, passengers can stay connected with family, friends and colleagues free-of-charge using the WiFi connectivity on board. Qatar Airways now offers the largest number of aircraft equipped with high-speed broadband connectivity in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.

On the major development, chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker stated: “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 WiFi offerings.”
