Emirates Offers Connectivity to All Skywards Members

Emirates enhances its inflight connectivity, allowing all passengers in every class of travel to enjoy elements of free connectivity once they sign up for Emirates Skywards.

The new development has resulted in an additional 30,000 Emirates Economy Class passengers connecting to complimentary onboard Wi-Fi every week.

Emirates has constantly been at the forefront of inflight Wi-Fi developments and has to date invested more than US$300 million dollars into onboard connectivity. Skywards members, whether Blue, Silver, Gold, or Platinum tier, travelling in any class, will enjoy free app messaging. Additionally, First Class passengers will have unlimited free internet if they are Skywards members, enabling them to shop or work online while in flight, as will Silver, Gold and Platinum Skywards members travelling in Business Class. Platinum Skywards members have complimentary internet access in all classes.

“Emirates has persistently worked with our service providers to optimise and improve the connectivity experience,” says Patrick Brannelly, SVP Retail, IFE & Connectivity. “In March we delivered about 55% more data per customer session compared to early 2022 despite the number of sessions increasing by 68% in the same period. We will continue to work to invest in upgrades and enhancements, and our A350 aircraft will arrive with the next generation of satellite connectivity already equipped.”

Passengers simply need to join Emirates Skywards – an easy and complimentary process – in order to access free Wi-Fi.
