As if Singapore Airlines First Class wasn’t already spectacular, passengers traveling in First Class and First Suites now receive free in-flight Wi-Fi, as reported by Mainly Miles. Effective August 1, 2019, Singapore Airlines now offers free Wi-Fi in the airline’s highest cabin of service while increasing data caps for other premium passengers.

Singapore Airlines has offered free Wi-Fi to select premium passengers for a number of years now. However, free Wi-Fi was restricted with data caps, even in First Class and First Suites.

Additionally, passengers traveling in Business Class and select upper-tier elite frequent flyers will receive free Wi-Fi with a higher data cap.

Effective August 1, Wi-Fi is available in the following cabins as follows:

  • Suites: Free unlimited Wi-Fi (up from 100MB)
  • First Class: Free unlimited Wi-Fi (up from 100MB)
  • Business Class: Free Wi-Fi up to 100MB (up from 30MB)
  • PPS Club Flyers: Free Wi-Fi up to 100MB (up from 30MB)

All other passengers will still have the option to purchase in-flight Wi-Fi.

Passengers who receive free Wi-Fi access will need to activate their session via the in-flight Wi-Fi portal through the “complimentary access” page.

While free unlimited Wi-Fi is a fantastic addition to First Suites and First Class, it should be noted that Wi-Fi speeds vary on Singapore Airlines. Nonetheless, premium passengers can now kill time in the sky sending emails and checking Twitter without having to worry about restrictive data caps.
