    SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) passengers travelling in economy and premium economy class will be able to access free unlimited Wi-Fi from Jul 1, the airline announced on Wednesday (May 31).

    To enjoy the perk, passengers must be a member of SIA's rewards programme KrisFlyer. Registration is free.

    SIA will be "the first airline to offer free unlimited Wi-Fi to customers across all cabin classes and virtually across the entire aircraft fleet", a company spokesperson told CNA.

    As of May 1, SIA has 136 passenger aircraft in its fleet. About 95 per cent of SIA's fleet is equipped with inflight connectivity, with the exception of seven Boeing 737-800 planes that are among SIA's oldest aircraft. These seven planes are not Wi-Fi enabled and are slated to be retired in the coming years.

    Currently, KrisFlyer members travelling in economy and premium economy class are offered two and three hours of free Wi-Fi respectively.

    Free unlimited Wi-Fi is currently offered to all passengers in Suites, First and Business classes, including non-KrisFlyer members.

    It is also offered to SIA's Priority Passenger Service Club members and supplementary cardholders across all cabin classes.

    "With our onboard Wi-Fi, our customers are able to stay in touch with their loved ones, post photos on their social media channels or keep updated on the latest news," the SIA spokesperson said.

    "The inflight Wi-Fi speed and experience might differ from the ground network, and is dependent on the number of concurrent users and the type of activity performed on a customer’s device."

    Sri Lankan also advertised that it offered Wi-fi about 5years ago through Dialog but I did not see this and when asked they said they were unaware about the Ad even in business class!
