—In the first three years since Emirates launched inflight Wi-Fi connectivity, over half a million passengers have connected to the internet on-board an Emirates flight.
In a statement made available to ZANIS by emirates, on-board Wi-Fi is available on all of Emirates’ 53 A380s and on 28 Boeing 777s, which serve routes across six continents.
The statement further said the airline also has an aggressive retrofit programme which will eventually see its entire fleet Wi-Fi enabled.
The statement said it is a fact that customers want on-board connectivity, and this demand is only going to increase as more people embrace an ‘always-on’ digital lifestyle.
The statement said they have always viewed Wi-Fi as a service and a value-added part of Emirates’ overall product, rather than a revenue stream.
