According to a recent survey by Routehappy, it has been found conclusively that more passengers around the world are now likely to find at least some Wi-Fi while flying.
Currently, there are 82 airlines around the world who are in the process of rolling out or already offer Wi-Fi.
The flight shopping measured Wi-Fi availability by airline capacity, known as Available Seat Miles (ASMs), which is calculated by multiplying the number of seats available on an airline’s fleet and the service miles flown.
Globally speaking, around 43 percent of ASMs offer Wi-Fi connectivity; which means that there is now a fair chance that you’ll find Wi-Fi on your flight, especially while flying international.
The top three airlines in the world by total ASMs are: Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and Emirates. Interestingly, only three airlines offer Wi-Fi on all of their flights: Icelandair, Southwest, and Virgin Atlantic.
There is a good Wi-Fi connectivity on all long-haul flights aboard Air Europa, Delta, Emirates, Etihad, Eurowings, EVA Air, Iberia, Kuwait, Lufthansa, SAS, Scoot, United, and Virgin Atlantic.
One consistent complaint throughout the years have been about the poor quality of the internet connection. However, as recent reports suggest, the quality of Wi-Fi connections is slowly and steadily improving.
Good news is, you can now stay connected to your loved ones and enjoy unlimited browsing hours even when you are high up in the sky.
