Staying connected while flying with Cathay will soon be a lot easier.
The Cathay Pacific Group will introduce high-speed WiFi to its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 fleets from mid-2018, in response to its customers’ growing demand for inflight connectivity. This follows the successful introduction of broadband services to its Airbus A350-900, one of the aircraft servicing the Vancouver/Hong Kong route.
Cathay Pacific Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Paul Loo said, “We have been listening to our customers who have told us that staying connected inflight is important to them. Our passengers will soon be able to not only roam around the cabin when the fasten seat belt sign comes off – the whole Internet awaits at 35,000 feet.
“We envisage that by 2020, all of our wide-body aircraft will have inflight connectivity capabilities. This will open up a wealth of opportunities for us to provide more innovative experiences for our customers.”
