Garuda Indonesia has launched an ‘Inflight Connectivity’ service on board all its Boeing 777-300ERs which allows Garuda Indonesia passengers in first class, executive class and economy class to access the internet through WiFi during the flight.
Faik Fahmi, director of services, Garuda Indonesia, said, “We hope this service will benefit our customers even more because now they can conduct business from the sky. It’s part of our ‘new service concept’ programme which launches our new ‘first class’ service and promotes much improved ‘executive class’ and ‘economy class’ service.”
While Garuda Indonesia’s first class passengers enjoy WiFi access as a complimentary service, passengers in executive class and economy class can enjoy internet service during the flight after completing payment by credit card or purchasing a voucher for the amount of US$ 11.95 for one hour unlimited internet browsing package or US$ 21.95 for an unlimited 24-hours package.
The ‘Inflight Connectivity’ service is currently available to B777-300 ER passengers. However, Garuda Indonesia will gradually introduce the same service on board the A330-200 and A330-300 fleets that operate on both domestic and international routes.
