Air Astana has completed the installation of an in-flight broadband communication system across its Boeing 767 fleet. The new service, available to both Business and Economy Class passengers, will allow travellers seamless connectivity on the airline’s long-haul routes to Europe and Asia.
Users can use the Wi-Fi in a similar way as they would anywhere else. It allows them to connect to the internet, use various applications for instant messaging, social media, listen to audio and check mail through personal computers, tablets and smartphones.
Air Astana passengers can choose from three connectivity packages: Light option covers 15 Mb, Regular option covers 50 Mb for US$15, and Super option offers 100 Mb. All services are estimated to operate at an average speed of between 2 and 5 Mbps.
The Boeing 767 is operated on domestic trunk routes and high-density, long-haul routes out of Almaty and Astana. www.airastana.com
