Emirates is now offering free onboard Wi-Fi to all Skywards members. The free plan, known as ‘Free Unlimited Chat’, gives you complimentary access to WhatsApp, Messenger and other text messaging services throughout the flight.
This plan is available to all Emirates Skywards members. You can always join Skywards for free to use the benefit.
There’s another option to get Free full Wi-Fi access (not just chat). This is only available to:
- Platinum members, flying in any class.
- Blue members travelling in First Class.
- Gold or Silver members travelling in Business Class or First Class.
How to use the Emirates’ Free Wi-Fi option?
Firstly, ensure that you add your Emirates Skywards membership number to your booking through the Emirates App or manage your booking online at least 24 hours before the flight. This step is essential as it helps Emirates identify you as a member and provide free Wi-Fi services.
Once you have added your membership number, you can use your Emirates Skywards account details to access Wi-Fi services on board. It is important to remember your password to avoid any inconvenience during the flight.
Marriott always offered some form of free Wi-Fi to all guests. However, these new plans are much better as, unlike before, there are no limits. You can stay connected throughout the journey.
Remember to add your Emirates Skywards number to your booking in time.
