Guests flying with Virgin Australia will soon find themselves digitally more connected to others. The second-largest airline in Australia is going to introduce the service of inflight Wi-Fi on its domestic and international flights. It means better entertainment and networking for the passengers than ever before!
The airline is currently taking preparations to make its Airbus A330, Boeing 777, and Boeing 737-800 aircraft suitable for holding the necessary equipment and technology for launching inflight Wi-Fi.

John Borghetti, the Chief Executive of Virgin Australia Group, made the announcement of new inflight Wi-Fi during the inauguration of the company’s brand new Long Haul International Business Class cabin in Los Angeles. Mr Borghetti said that the new service, which is going to be launched from mid-2017, is likely to curve out a new air travel experience for the flyers. According to him, the new service will allow passengers instant access to email, social media, and state-of-the-art information about connecting flights and the airline’s various travel plans.
Mr Borghetti continued saying that the airline has always been committed to provide the best possible entertainment and combined connectivity experience for their guests during flights. He believed that the new Wi-Fi service would deliver on that commitment and would be popular among all the guests, especially the business travellers, by providing uninterrupted access to internet during their flights.
