SAUDIA expands popular free social messaging service


Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) has announced that its highly popular free social messaging plan has now expanded to five free messaging apps.

SAUDIA is the first and only airline in the world to provide a free social messaging plan that includes five of the most popular and widely used applications. Included in the plan is texting up to 10 MBs, which can be used on any of the included five chatting applications: WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage, and now Instagram chat and WeChat.

As of May, guests have had the option to log on to the free messaging plan onboard to connect with family and friends while inflight. The free messaging plan has since become widely used onboard SAUDIA flights, with now more than 85 per cent of passengers connecting onto the simple, easy to use plan.

Guests travelling with SAUDIA onboard all flights enabled with WiFi connectivity can access the social messaging plan through a simple three-step login process.

All guests can access the free social media messaging plan, regardless of their class of travel.

The free plan includes texting only, with photos and attachments excluded, however a range of WiFi plans are available for purchase which do enable file and photo transfer.
