Doha, Qatar — The International Qatar airways announced that they will be providing free on-board ‘Super Wi-Fi’ connectivity to all of their passengers starting from Friday onwards, until January 02 of the coming year.

“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”, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker.

Over 100 aircrafts of the Qatar airways have been fitted with the Wi-Fi service. This utilizes the award-winning GX Aviation technology from the global mobile satellite communications provider, Inmarsat.

“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 had won four prestigious prizes at the Skytrax World Airline Awards last year. The airline had also won the award of ‘World’s Best Airline’, making it the only airline in the competition’s history to win it five times.
