Qatar Airways unlocks free superfast WiFi on selected flights

Qatar Airways is offering free unlimited WiFi on selected flights to its Doha hub through to the middle of November.

The Oneworld member's Super WiFi system is rated at decent broadband-grade speeds – we tested it at 5-8Mbps for downloads, which is decidedly faster than most international aircraft Internet services – and is available on selected Boeing 777-300ER jets.

However, flights booked through Qatar Airways' website on a half-dozen routes through to 14 November 2018 will include a coupon for free Super WiFi from for the duration of their flight.

The special access code appears on the booking confirmation page and is valid for all travel classes on the following flights:

  • Sydney / Canberra QR907
  • London Heathrow QR006, QR008
  • Washington D.C. QR708
  • New York QR702
  • Chicago QR726
  • Bangkok QR831

If you're soon to make such a booking, remember that you may also be able to hoover up a triple-serve of Qpoints status credits in Qatar Airways' Privilege Club frequent flyer scheme – that's sufficient to catapult you to from a status zero to a Platinum-lined hero in a single trip.

    Be interesting to see if speeds hold up once you have free usage
