Singapore Airlines unlocks free WiFi

Wonderful as it is to be soaring high above the clouds and feel disconnected from, unburdened by the cares of the world far below, there's many a time you'd rather not be completely cut off.

It could be to remain in touch with family and friends – to share teasing photos of your journey on social media – to finalise some urgent work, or complete a bit of last-minute research on your destination.

WiFi remains the happy fix-all for inflight isolation, and Singapore Airlines is now offering two hours of free WiFi to every passenger.

This special promotion runs through to 31 March 2022, and there's no need to do anything other than make sure your KrisFlyer membership number is entered along with your booking (which can be done when you book that SQ flights, through the website's Manage Booking service, or when checking in for your flight at the airport).

Those two free hours are available on all Singapore Airlines jets fitted with WiFi – and that extensive roster includes the Airbus A380s, Boeing 777s and 787s, Airbus A350s (in fact, every SQ aircraft bar its regional Boeing 737s sport satellite-based inflight connectivity).

Just fire up your laptop, smartphone or tablet and connect to the aircraft's KrisWorld WiFi network – visit on your Web browser – and click the 'Complimentary Access' button.

That two hours of free WiFi comes on top of Singapore Airlines' standard offering of two hours of text-based chat and 100MB of Web data for economy, premium economy and business class passengers.

For comparison, three hours of WiFi typically costs US$17 on Singapore Airlines flights, with other plans charged according to data (100MB for US$10, 200MB for US$16).
