Onboard wi-fi

Emirates Skywards members

Depending upon your tier and the cabin that you’re flying in, members can enjoy either free or discounted Wi-Fi throughout their flight.

To enjoy free or discounted Wi-Fi on board, you’ll need to add your Emirates Skywards membership number either at the time of booking or later via Manage your booking. Once on board, use your membership number and password to log in.

If you’re an Emirates Skywards Silver or Blue member, make sure you log in as a member and not as a guest so you can enjoy both the 20MB for free and then buy a discounted plan.

Our onboard wi-fi

Performs best if you:

  • Avoid streaming videos
  • Don’t send pictures
  • Use apps instead of browsers, because apps use less data
  • Turn off background apps you aren’t using
  • Refrain from using VPNs


Due to regulations, we can’t always offer communications services over every country. Our service providers are working with regulators to extend coverage. We can’t guarantee these services on all flights or that they will be fault-free. Emirates liability is limited accordingly.
