Airlines in Southeast Asia with Inflight Wifi

WiFi is everywhere, from cafes to bus stops, trains to airports, it’s a service that people on the go value highly.  Unfortunately the WiFi craze hasn’t reached its fullest potential yet and we can’t wait for the day it’s included (for free) in the flights of the future. 

Though frequent fliers have made their pleas to the airlines to offer onboard internet, when the service is available it isn’t always up to par with the tech-savvy traveler’s needs…

But, now In-flight Wi-Fi is getting faster and cheaper, and is an increasingly common offering on budget and flagship airlines alike. “Sorry I missed your email – I was on a plane” is an excuse that simply doesn’t cut it anymore.

Many of Southeast Asians are already at a point with technology where we expect constant access to WiFi – even when we’re high in the sky. “Does my flight have WiFi?” is not a question we still expect to ask ourselves in this day and age. Unfortunately, airline WiFi can still feel like a luxury. It is still relatively new to Southeast Asian-based airlines. 

The good news is that many airlines are learning how much inflight WiFi affects the quality of a customer’s flying experience. But adding WiFi is just the start – as a general industry-wide push, airlines that have onboard WiFi are now trying to make it better, faster, and cheaper. Many start to offer free wifi with reasonable speed (if not very good one) for their passengers to experience onboard internet.

We've gathered list of airlines that offer free inflight wifi onboard of their planes at many thousands above sea level.
