Ooredoo and Qatar Airways have signed an MoU that will see the operator sponsoring Qatar Airways’ in-flight Wi-Fi service on all its A380, A350, B787, A319, and select A320 and A330 flights. With the in-flight Wi-Fi service, customers can use their smart devices to access emails, browse the Internet and also send SMS/MMS via their smartphones once the service is enabled onboard.
With Ooredoo’s sponsorship, all passengers can enjoy the first fifteen minutes of Wi-Fi for free, enabling them to contact loved ones on the ground. After the free period, customers will be able to continue using the Wi-Fi service by entering their credit card details when prompted. Passengers on the Qatar Airways flights will be made aware of the availability of the service via Ooredoo's logo on the log-in screen, crew announcements, in-seat pocket information and on-flight screen adverts.
