Etihad connectivity

If you are about to fly on an Etihad Boeing 777 don’t worry about mobile and internet connectivity.   All the airline’s 24 triple sevens now have wi-fi.

This milestone comes only months before the airline’s entire passenger fleet of 89 aircraft are connected.  This will make Etihad Airways the first in the region and one of the few airlines in the world, to offer mobile and internet connectivity services on every aircraft.  The passenger fleet includes 28 Airbus A320s, 26 A330s, 11 A340s and 24 Boeing 777 family aircraft.
 
The mobile connectivity service can be accessed by guests using their mobile phones and smartphones to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages and emails, and use mobile data services.  The Live TV onboard service allows passengers to watch live news and major sporting events on seven popular television channels including BBC World News, CNBC, CNN, euronews, Japan’s NHK World Premium, Sky News Arabia, and Sport 24.
 
Cabin crew and flight deck operations can also utilise wi-fi connections to handle medical emergencies.
 
Packages to access the internet start at US$5 and can be purchased using credit cards, PayPal and a range of other convenient payment methods.  Mobile telephone usage will be billed by the guest’s mobile service providers.   www.etihad.com
