Singapore Airlines passengers will be able to use internet services in the skies.

Singapore Airlines already helps people kick off their holiday or business trip in great comfort and style, but soon there will be even more technological options available to those flying to Australia.

As part of a new $50 million programme, passengers will now be able to use internet and mobile data at 35,000 ft.

The advances will be rolled out on 14 flights – also encompassing those from Singapore to Newark and Los Angeles.

People on the high-tech flights will be able to surf the Internet, send and receive emails on smartphones tablets and laptops, as well have the opportunity to send and receive SMS text messages with GSM-compatible mobile phones.

Although only 14 flights have been named, a new partnership with leading connectivity provider OnAir will mean that the technology will be progressively rolled out across all of Singapore’s long-haul Airbus A380-800, A340-500 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft over the next two years.
