Guests flying on the wi-fi enabled aircraft will be able to use the service free of charge during the testing period and can enjoy access to popular streaming services Netflix, Stan and Pandora on their devices while in the air.

Virgin Australia has partnered with leading inflight connectivity provider Gogo and Australia’s leading satellite provider Optus to provide customers with inflight wi-fi.

Guests who travel on the wi-fi-enabled aircraft during the customer testing period will be notified that wi-fi is available on their flight and provided with instructions on how to access the wi-fi.

Virgin Australia will finalise its business model after considering customer feedback and the results of the testing period.
