Ooredoo, the fastest-growing telecommunications company in the world, has become the exclusive three-year sponsor of on-board Wi-Fi across the Qatar Airlines fleet.
This pioneering partnership sees two of the country’s biggest brands come together to offer customers worldwide one of the best on-board connections.
Effective from December, Qatar Airways passengers on all connected aircraft will enjoy free Wi-Fi for the first 15 minutes courtesy of Ooredoo.
For those passengers who wish to remain connected in the air, Qatar Airways offers a customer-friendly and easy payment programme, based on the amount of time needed.
One hour of connectivity is just US$5; three hours of connectivity is just US$10; and for passengers on longer Qatar Airways flights, a set price of US$20 for the duration of their trip is available, regardless of the number of hours used.
Guests in Qatar Airways First Class cabin on board the airline’s A380 will enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi for the duration of their trip.
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways has always prided itself on delivering outstanding in-flight service, superior on-board products, and operational excellence for its passengers and today’s announcement is proof of this on-going commitment.
“We believe on-board shouldn’t mean off-line. As an ambitious and award-winning business we understand the need to stay connected whilst going places.
“By offering customers the chance to stay connected whilst flying, Qatar Airways is demonstrating its promise to offer a premium service to all customers.
“This partnership really reflects the values at the core of our new, recently unveiled, global brand positioning – ‘Going Places Together’ – and further underpins our commitment to offering the best to our customers.”
