Free Wi-Fi

Stay connected with family and friends with two hours of free text messaging on WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook Messenger, Viber Chat or WeChat. Or you can use 20MB of data for free within two hours of login.

Simply log in to our OnAir onboard Wi-Fi and choose how you want to connect with your loved ones.

You can also choose from our data plans if you would like to check your social media, send emails or browse your favourite sites.

And if you’re an Emirates Skywards member, you can continue to enjoy free or discounted Wi-Fi throughout your flight depending on your membership tier.

Emirates Skywards members

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 data for free and then buy a discounted plan.
