Well this is good news for travellers! Virgin Australia passengers will soon be able to stay connected with inflight wi-fi on its Domestic and International fleet, but we have to wait about a year before it happens.
From mid-2017, Virgin Australia plans to begin fitting out its Boeing 737-800, Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft with equipment that enables inflight wi-fi. Yes, that means you will have access to email and social media, as well as up-to-date information about connecting flights and travel plans.
I can't bring you much more news yet about this travel advancement until the end of this year when more details about Virgin Australia’s inflight wi-fi, including technology partners and business model, will be released.
Virgin Australia will work with relevant regulators to obtain approval for its inflight wi-fi.
