Passengers on Air New Zealand have accessed more than one million free in-flight passenger broadband sessions, within a year of the airline switching to a free-of-charge model for its in-flight broadband service.
December 2019 was Air New Zealand’s biggest month ever for free in-flight Wi-Fi sessions, with more than 122,000 customers connecting.
Inmarsat’s GX Aviation is currently available on almost 25 aircraft within the Air New Zealand fleet, operating on Trans-Tasman, Pacific Island, US and London routes. This includes a combination of Boeing 777-200, 777-300 and 787-9 aircraft, in addition to Airbus A320 and A321neos.
Chris Rogerson, Inmarsat Aviation’s Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific, said: “Air New Zealand is one of the airline industry’s biggest advocates of free in-flight broadband. Whenever and wherever passengers fly with them, they will be offered unrestricted internet access at zero cost. It is a prime example of how this leading airline always seeks to delight and surprise their passengers.”
