British Airways Welcomes Wi-Fi to Long-Haul Fleets


British Airways has introduced in-flight Wi-Fi on some of its long-haul aircrafts, with its first three connected aircraft now in service.  

The airline plans to connect 118 of its long-haul fleet over the next two years.

Available in two packages, the ‘Browse’ package supports internet surfing, social media and WhatsApp, while the ‘Stream’ package supports streaming of music and entertainment from services such as Netflix.

The packages are available to purchase for one hour, four hours or the full flight.

Passengers will be informed of the availability of Wi-Fi when they board a connected aircraft and it will be ready to use approximately 10 minutes after take-off when the aircraft has passed 10,000ft.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways director of brand and customer experience, said: “British Airways has launched its multi-million-pound investment plan to benefit its customers with more choice and quality for all.

“Staying connected is important to our customers who want to be able to work, browse and stream in the air. “They can now look forward to enjoying the latest generation Wi-Fi across our long-haul fleet over the next two years.”
