Prominent airline Qatar Airways, on Friday, began offering free on-board 'Super Wi-Fi' connectivity to all passengers until January 2, 2021.

“During these challenging times Qatar Airways continues to lead and innovate, providing our passengers with the five-star experience they have come to expect from the World’s Best Airline", said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker.

"Not only does this showcase the exceptional Qatar Airways service at a time when other airlines are using the current market challenges as a reason to reduce their Wi-Fi offerings. It also proves that our mission to connect people around the world does not start and end with just travel. We understand the importance, especially in recent months, of enabling people to be connected at all times, whether on-the-ground or 35,000ft in-the-air".

Over 100 aircraft of the airline have been fitted with the Wi-Fi service, which utilizes the award-winning GX Aviation technology from the global mobile satellite communications provider, Inmarsat.

In 2019, Qatar Airways won four prestigious prizes at the Skytrax World Airline Awards including ‘World’s Best Airline’, making it the only airline in the competition’s history to win it five times.
