Today, Emirates has announced that it would be partnering with OnAir to offer in-flight Wi-Fi for its A380 flights within Australian airspace. This announcement is timed perfectly to coincide with the October 2 launch of its new Melbourne-Auckland-Dubai route.
While it’s still a long way from being able to Facebook all your friends (and check EFTM) whenever you hit the air, it’s still a really positive step for in-flight entertainment in this country.
It won’t be cheap though. Prices start at $US7.50 for 5MB of data, and range up to $US25 for 100MB, with a $US15 25MB option thrown in the middle there.
Still for business travellers needing to send an important email or Facebook junkies unable to go for a few hours without Liking their own status, this is an awesome development.
Price: From $US7.50
