Qatar Airways Company, also known as Qatar Airways, is Qatar’s state-owned flag carrier. Qatar Airways uses a collection of more than 200 aircraft to fly to over 150 different geographies in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Oceania.

Qatar Airways’ fleet of aircrafts is equipped with both standard (OnAir WiFi) and high-speed internet branded as “Super WiFi.”

While the airline’s original version of in-flight internet was poorly welcomed due to slow speeds and connectivity issues, Qatar Airways has been hard at work implementing a new high-speed alternative called Super WiFi on its aircrafts, which promises a considerably better browsing experience.

Qatar Airlines WiFi

Qatar Airways flights offer in-flight internet via two paid WiFi plans, depending on the aircraft: Standard OnAir WiFi and Super WiFi.

Qatar Airways flights have inflight internet only for certain long-range and some shorter-range flights:

  • Standard OnAir Wi-Fi is available on the B787-8 aircrafts only.
  • Super Wi-Fi is up to ten times quicker than the standard Wi-Fi. It is accessible on every Boeing 777 and A350 aircraft.

Therefore, booking an Airbus A350 or Boeing 777 with QSuites will most probably guarantee Super WiFi connectivity.

However, the airline also provides 30 minutes to 1 hour of complimentary Wi-Fi to all passengers. This is unlimited to use for the first hour of being connected and you are able to browse the internet without limits.

Once you’re above 10 000 feet, you can use your electronic gadgets to connect to the internet, send messages, and send emails to stay in touch with everyone on the ground.

Qatar Airlines Super WiFi sponsored by Ooredoo

Super WiFi

For its in-flight Super Wi-Fi plan, Qatar Airways has teamed with Ooredoo for it’s WiFi connectivity. This connections is much faster than the standard WiFi and provides substantial speed increase which supports uploads and downloads which are perfect for working on flights.

Expected speeds on Super WiFi are between 5Mbps to 10Mbps.

Standard OnAir WiFi

The standard WiFi plans are based on somewhat out-dated technologies by Oryx One Communications. The WiFi coverage on this option depends on the number of users connected on the flight. From our experience, the speeds are poor with constant Wi-Fi drops due to a lack of coverage.

The pricing for Qatar Airways WiFi plans are listed below.

WiFi OptionsPriceData Limit
Super WiFi (Entire Flight)$10.00Unlimited
Standard OnAir WiFi (3 hours)$10.00100 MB
Standard OnAir WiFi (Entire Flight)$20.00200 MB
WiFi plans on selected Qatar Airways aircraft

It’s worth noting that Qatar Airways gives free Wi-Fi codes on specific trips, but only if you book online with them. If you would like to pay for Super WiFi before your flight, we recommened checking-in online to your Qatar flight 24 hours before departure and look for a section on the check-in page to purchase in-flight WiFi. The price of Super WiFi is purchased here is $8 instead of the $10 on the flight. The promo code can be entered on your device during the flight.
