Nothing to do on your flight? That might change soon as AirAsia is currently testing in-flight for passengers.
In-flight WiFi is not really new as many major airlines around the world have started providing in-flight to their customers. However, AirAsia could be the first budget airline in Asia to offer such service.
According to the report from the folks at Amanz.my, the initial tests conducted by AirAsia are limited to several social applications only such as WhatsApp, WeChat and LINE. A photo of volunteers who tested the in-flight WiFi was shown and tweeted by @AirAsia official twitter account.
This is definitely one of AirAsia’s strategies to increase revenues through add-ons during flight reservation. Based on the screenshots above, the access is made available by using a third party application called roKKi. I guess it’s still too early to speculate of how much AirAsia is going to charge for this WiFi service.
Having WiFi on-board is definitely a great news for someone like me because I run an online business full-time and I have to stay connected with my customers as much as possible.
What do you think of having WiFi on your flight?
