Singapore Airlines is the latest carrier to bring complimentary inflight Wi-Fi to all passengers on board. The carrier will reportedly expand its offering – currently limited to 2 hours for passengers in economy class – to allow for access throughout the flight from July 2023.
As with many other airlines, access will be tied to membership in the company’s KrisFlyer frequent flyer program. Unlike recent moves by Air Canada and Emirates, however, the offering will include full access to the internet link rather than a more limited, messaging-only option.
If the carrier requires the KrisFlyer number to be associated with the booking, as is implied on its website, that likely excludes travelers coming from its many airlines partners. At least Air Canada addressed that challenge, allowing for members in key strategic partner programs to also gain access to the services on board.
