Passengers flying with Singapore Airlines will soon be able to browse the internet at no additional cost.

Starting July 1, the carrier plans to offer complimentary inflight Wi-Fi to passengers on routes throughout its network.

Singapore’s move comes as global airlines are increasingly looking to expand free Wi-Fi offerings.

Once Singapore’s complimentary Wi-Fi rolls out, it will join a small number of airlines that provide free Wi-Fi for all cabin classes. In the U.S., JetBlue has long offered free Wi-Fi for all passengers. Earlier this year, Delta joined the movement and made Wi-Fi free for all passengers on domestic flights.

More may be on the way. Hawaiian Airlines announced plans for free Starlink Wi-Fi on transpacific routes in April 2022. And Delta said in March that it plans to expand free Wi-Fi to its international flights by the end of 2024.

To use Singapore’s free Wi-Fi-, passengers will have to enter the details of their KrisFlyer accounts when booking their flights or at check-in to access the inflight Wi-Fi.

Travelers who don’t have KrisFlyer accounts can sign up for a free membership online or through Singapore’s digital content portal on board their flights to use the free Wi-Fi.

Yeoh Phee Teik, Singapore’s senior vice president of customer experience, said high-speed, inflight Wi-Fi is essential to the travel experience.

“Giving [customers] access to free unlimited Wi-Fi is yet another milestone in SIA’s continuous effort to offer an exceptional end-to-end travel experience,” he said in a statement.
