Air New Zealand to roll out inflight wi-fi across its domestic and international services within two years
“Given Air New Zealand operates some of the longest flights in the world, and in oceanic areas where there has historically been poor quality satellite service, we have patiently worked with partners until comfortable that a service which meets the high expectations of our customers is available,” said Air New Zealand CEO Christopher Luxon.
“Proving flights on a partner company test aircraft have now given us the confidence to introduce what we believe will be the world’s most reliable inflight connectivity. Customers will be able to use their social media channels, stay on top of emails and browse the internet.”
Chief digital officer Avi Golan says Air New Zealand is committed to enhancing customer journeys by leveraging the latest technology in the air and on the ground.
“We are working to bring digital innovations to every step of the customer journey and it will be exciting to see inflight wifi come to life for customers right across the Air New Zealand global network,” he said.
