Emirates launches A380 wi-fi connectivity

Emirates officially launched its Wi-Fi connectivity for its growing fleet of double-decker aircraft, A380. Wi-Fi services will initially launch on 11 of 19 aircrafts currently in service and all new aircraft will now come with the OnAir wireless service, as it’s introduced across the entire 71 aircraft on order. Emirates is launching four prices, covering normal and heavy use for mobiles and laptops – although mobile services won’t be introduced until next June. They start at $7.50 for mobile use up to 5MB, rising to $15 for 25MB, while laptop prices begin at $15 for 25MB, rising to $25 for 100MB. The $7.50 package should be sufficient for the average BlackBerry user to stay connected all the way from Dubai to Paris. “Adding internet access is going to be a vital and ubiquitous part of any in-flight experience, just as it is in everyday life on the ground,” said Patrick Brannelly, Vice President Corporate Communications Product, Publishing, Digital and Events.
