Only a couple of years ago, in-flight connectivity was a luxury provided by only a small number of airlines worldwide.
Today, passengers around the world have a 39% chance that the flight they board will offer in-flight Wi-Fi, an 8% increase from 2016.
Last year we watched this worldwide phenomenon really kick off, with the growing demand for on-demand connectivity forcing the aviation industry to act fast, or risk losing even their most loyal passengers.
In Australia, we are only just starting to catch up to the rest of the world, with two of Australia’s largest carriers jumping on-board in 2017. According to experts, high speed Wi-Fi will be the biggest change passengers will experience on Qantas and Virgin Australia flights this year. Air New Zealand has also discussed a roll-out plan for inflight Wi-Fi in late 2017, with international routes taking priority.
If you’re one of the 68% of people who choose their flights based on Wi-Fi connectivity, check out our cheat sheet showing airlines who currently offer in-flight Wi-Fi, and those you can expect in 2017.
