No matter the cabin or travel class, all customers will receive free basic in-flight WiFi, according to Emirates, one of the top airlines in the world. Since the change, 30,000 more Economy Class travelers have connected to the free onboard Wi-Fi each week.
Although there is no cost associated with using the in-flight internet, one must first register to become an Emirates Skywards member. The airline’s loyalty program, Emirates Skywards, is open to everyone and is free to join.
In every class of travel, all Emirates Skywards members can now take advantage of some kind of free connectivity. Free app messaging is available to all Skywards members, regardless of their tier (Blue, Silver, Gold, or Platinum), and whether they are flying in Economy, Premium Economy, Business, or First Class.
Additionally, Skywards members flying in First Class and Silver, Gold, and Platinum Skywards members traveling in Business Class will both enjoy unrestricted free internet access, allowing them to shop or do business online while in flight. Internet access is free for Platinum Skywards members in all classes.
