Singapore Airlines has changed its onboard Wi-Fi availability, offering free, unlimited inflight Wi-Fi to all first and business class customers and allowing some free passes for all other flyers, too.

The change in Wi-Fi policy on Singapore's website was first spotted by Mainly Miles Monday morning.

According to Singapore, all travelers flying in Singapore Suites, First Class, and Business Class will get unlimited complimentary Wi-Fi on all Singapore Airlines flights. Additionally, flyers with elite-level PPS Cub status will also get the unlimited, free Wi-Fi allowance.

The news makes Singapore Airlines the first Asia-Pacific carrier to offer free, unlimited premium cabin Wi-Fi – a trend travelers surely hope will continue to spread around the world.

And it's not just the flyers sitting up front who will benefit, either. Not to be left out, travelers flying in Singapore Airlines Premium Economy and Economy can also get free Wi-Fi, although not for the whole flight.

Premium Economy travelers with a free Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer account get three free hours of Wi-Fi onboard. Economy flyers with a KrisFlyer account get two free hours. Travelers without a free KrisFlyer frequent flyer account do not get any free Wi-Fi onboard.

Considering the fees Singapore charges per megabyte of Wi-Fi, these new allowances are a huge boon for Singapore flyers. The internet plan that only allows for messaging is $4 per hour. From there, Singapore charges by the megabyte for Wi-Fi. 100MB is $10 and 200MB is $16. You can also purchase “Surf” access for $16, which does not list a megabyte limit but is only available for three hours at a time.

The only Singapore planes that will not offer free Wi-Fi are the Boeing 737-800s, which mostly fly short-haul routes around Southeast Asia. The Boeing 737-8 MAX does have Wi-Fi onboard.

Bottom Line

Singapore Airlines is now offering free, unlimited inflight Wi-Fi to all Suites, First Class, and Business Class customers while also allowing Premium Economy and Economy travelers a few free hours as well.

Singapore Airlines is now the first Asia-Pacific carrier to offer free, unlimited inflight Wi-Fi, hopefully blazing a trail for the rest of the region's airlines and others around the world.
