Emirates Sets Record with Over 1 million Wi-Fi Connections Onboard


Emirates has set a new record with over 1 million Wi-Fi connections made on board its flights in March alone with 1,037,016 Emirates customers connected to the internet during their flight.

The connections were mainly made over mobile devices with over 94% of users connecting with a smartphone. Twice as many connections were made on an iOS mobile phone as compared to an Android mobile, and about 2% with a tablet. The remaining connections were made with laptops and other devices.

Wi-Fi connectivity is available on over 98% of the Emirates fleet, including all A380s, 777-300ERs and 777-200LRs. Customers in all cabin classes receive 20MB of free Wi-Fi data.

Emirates Skywards members enjoy special benefits depending on their membership tier and class of travel, including free Wi-Fi when travelling in First Class or Business Class.

Over 94% of passengers connecting to Wi-Fi on board Emirates in March took advantage of the complimentary offer and logged on free of charge.

The highest data usage from a passenger was made by an Emirates Skywards member who stayed connected throughout the flight from Dubai to Johannesburg, consuming 4.9 GB of data.
