Singapore Airlines Offering Free Unlimited Inflight Wi-Fi To All Cabin Classes From July Onwards

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will extend its free unlimited inflight Wi-Fi service to all cabin classes soon. According to its official announcement, this upcoming change will be in effect for all flights starting July this year, with the exception of those using its seven Boeing 737-800 NGs that are not Wi-Fi enabled.

However, much like its current iteration, passengers are required to be part of the airline‘s KrisFlyer membership in order to enjoy the inflight Wi-Fi service. Nevertheless, unlimited access will be provided to all flyers, regardless of which cabin class – including those booked under the Premium Economy Class and Economy class.

For the uninitiated, SIA currently does not offer complimentary unlimited inflight Wi-Fi connectivity to the two aforementioned classes. Instead, this benefit only applies to passengers who are flying under its Suites, First and Business classes, whereas those in Premium Economy and Economy are only offered two and three hours of access respectively. With this upcoming change, the airline will be the first of its kind to offer unlimited wireless internet across all cabin classes without the need of an additional fee on top of its flight fares.

“This enhanced Wi-Fi offering will be available virtually across the entire aircraft fleet and almost the entire global SIA route network,” the airlines said in its recently published news release. “As a result, customers across all cabin classes will be able to stay connected with loved ones, work online, or keep up to date with the latest news or their social media feeds, even from 36,000 feet in the sky.”

To enjoy the service, passengers must enter their KrisFlyer details at the point of booking through the Manage Booking online option or at check-in, connect to the inflight Wi-Fi, access, and then select “Complimentary Access”. For non-members, registration is free and sign ups can also be done while in-flight by accessing the same URL mentioned earlier via their personal devices.

In the same news release, the airlines also notes that its Wi-Fi speed and experience might differ from ground-based networks, and is dependent on the number of concurrent users and the type of activity performed on a customer’s device. Of course, this is to be expected, but at least you’ll have more things to do than exploring whatever the onboard entertainment system has to offer during long flights.
