The airline says it now offers “the largest number of aircraft equipped with the most superior high-speed broadband on board in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa”.

Passengers travelling on flights fitted with ‘Super wifi’ are entitled to one hour’s free access, with full-flight access also available for purchase.

Commenting on the news Qatar Airways’ Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said:

“As a leader of innovation within the global aviation industry, Qatar Airways already operates one of the youngest and most technologically-advanced fleet in the skies. Where other airlines are reducing their wifi offering, Qatar Airways is expanding it.

“With connection to our loved ones and friends now more important than ever during these challenging times, we are delighted to work with Inmarsat and its GX Aviation technology to bring high-speed Super wifi broadband to passengers on board our fleet as part of Qatar Airways’ exceptional five-star service.”
