Etihad premium fliers to receive free wi-fi, iPads on US flights

ABU DHABI, March 30, 2017

Assuring passengers of its highest level of service, Etihad Airways will be offering some guests free wi-fi and iPads on its flights from Abu Dhabi from April 2, the airline said in a statement.

The new service comes as an alternative to the electronics ban imposed by the US on nonstop flights from Muslim-majority countries.

Under the ban, flyers are barred from carrying any electronic device larger than a mobile phone, including laptops, cameras and tablets, onboard.

This new service will enable busy customers to do some work mid-flight or communicate with friends and family despite the electronics ban.

“Premium Class guests on Etihad Airways flights to the US will receive wi-fi vouchers from our cabin crew with the onboard welcome drink. These vouchers will provide free Wi-Fi for the duration of the flight,” the airline said.

"In addition to free wi-fi, we’ll have iPads available on all US-bound flights for those that need them. Power and USB sockets at every seat will keep devices charged throughout the journey.” - TradeArabia News Service
