AirAsia expands free in-flight Internet for passengers
TRAVELERS will be delighted to know that low-cost carrier AirAsia has expanded free in-flight Internet for its passengers.
But there’s a catch.
The passengers have to be AirAsia BIG (AirAsia’s loyalty program) members.
ROKKI was launched in 2014 for selected AirAsia flights (flight code AK) and since then, 44 aircraft have been equipped with the in-flight WiFi service. The service offers two plans: one for instant messaging, and the other for light Internet usage, priced at RM9 for 3MB and RM18 for 10MB respectively.
The AirAsia BIG offer allows its members to use 2MB worth of ROKKI’s instant messaging plan for access to WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE, KakaoTalk, and Viber. All they need to do is connect to ROKKI Wi-Fi onboard and log in to the ROKKI portal using their AirAsia BIG login details to automatically redeem the plan.
Keep in mind, however, that the quota is extremely limited so don’t expect to update Instagram or stream YouTube videos while the plane is cruising at 35,000 feet in the air. If you just need to reply e-mails or check in on your loved ones then the free in-flight WiFi service is pretty swell.
Also, do note that the service will automatically turn off when the aircraft is below 10,000 feet. And when flying within the territories of India, the Internet service will be switched off due to country regulations.
