Wifi in the Sky with Virgin Australia

This month Virgin Australia announced that it has commenced a three-month testing period of inflight wireless internet access on one of its Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Guests flying on the wi-fi enabled aircraft will be able to use the service free of charge during the testing period and can enjoy access to popular streaming services Netflix, Stan and Pandora on their devices while in the air.

Virgin Australia has partnered with leading inflight connectivity provider Gogo and Australia’s leading satellite provider Optus to provide customers with inflight wi-fi.

Guests who travel on the  wi-fi-enabled aircraft during the customer testing period will be notified that wi-fi is available on their flight and provided with instructions on how to access the wi-fi.

They will finalise their business model after considering customer feedback and the results of the testing period.
