Qatar Airways announces free passenger Wi-Fi through exclusive three-year sponsorship deal with Ooredoo

Qatar Airways has announced that Ooredoo, the telecommunications company, will be the exclusive three-year sponsor of on-board Wi-Fi across the airline’s state-of-the-art fleet.

Effective 17 December 2015, to celebrate Qatar National Day, Qatar Airways passengers on all connected aircraft will enjoy free Wi-Fi for the first 15 minutes courtesy of Ooredoo. For those passengers who wish to remain connected in the air, Qatar Airways offers a payment programme, based on the amount of time needed. One hour of connectivity is US$5; three hours of connectivity is US$10; and for passengers on longer Qatar Airways flights, a set price of US$20 for the duration of their trip is available, regardless of the number of hours used.

Guests in Qatar Airways First Class cabin on board the airline’s A380 will enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi for the duration of their trip.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We believe on-board shouldn’t mean off-line. As an ambitious and award-winning business we understand the need to stay connected whilst going places. By offering customers the chance to stay connected whilst flying, Qatar Airways is demonstrating its promise to offer a premium service to all customers.

“This partnership really reflects the values at the core of our new, recently unveiled, global brand positioning – ‘Going Places Together’ – and further underpins our commitment to offering the best to our customers.”
