Cathay Pacific has said it will offer high-speed Wi-Fi on its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft from mid-2018.

It said it plans to offer the service in response to growing demand for in-flight connectivity. It already offers broadband services on its Airbus A350-900 aircraft.

The carrier’s chief customer and commercial officer, Paul Loo, said: “we have been listening to our customers who have told us that staying connected in-flight is important to them.

“We envisage that by 2020 all of our wide-bodied aircraft will have in-flight connectivity. This will open up a wealth of opportunities for us to provide more innovative experiences for our customers.”

Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon will be the first major carrier in Asia to adopt Gogo’s 2Ku satellite-based broadband in-flight connectivity technology on their Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft.

It will allow passengers to check e-mails, browse the web, access social networks and shop online. — VNS
