Virgin Australia to Offer Inflight Wi-Fi on International Flights
Posted: 2017 Aug 10
 
Virgin Australiahas become the only Australian airline to offer wi-fi internationally, following its announcement to rollout inflight wireless internet on the majority of its domestic and international aircraft. 
 
Virgin Australia Group CEO John Borghetti said: “We want to provide the world’s most rewarding travel experience and we know that enabling our guests to remain connected while flying is central to that.”  Therefore, we’re pleased to announce our rollout plans for inflight wi-fi today, which will see more than 90 per cent of Virgin Australia’s fleet fitted with this technology. 
 
Virgin Australia will offer a base level of free wi-fi to all of our guests on domestic flights and become the only Australian airline to offer wi-fi on international flights.” 
 
“We’ve chosen to partner with leading inflight connectivity provider Gogo, who deliver inflight wi-fi to airlines around the world including Delta Air Lines, Virgin Atlantic, and British Airways. Through our partnership with Gogo and Optus Satellite, we will have access to the largest fleet of satellites servicing Australia and New Zealand, providing our guests with a fast and reliable wi-fi experience on board,” Mr Borghetti said.
 
The airline is now rolling out inflight wi-fi to its Boeing 737 aircraft, following the successful trial on a Boeing 737 (registration VH-YIG). Inflight wi-fi services on Boeing 777 jetliners will commence in October. 
 
Virgin Australia expects to have inflight wi-fi on all Boeing 777 aircraft and the majority of Boeing 737 aircraft, by end of 2018. 
 
The airline’s Airbus A330 aircraft are due for completion of the wi-fi installation by the second half of 2019.
