Scoot™, the low-cost, medium-haul arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, has launched a low-cost inflight Wi-Fi plan named “Social-Lite”, for passengers that want to surf light on the internet.
Optimised for messaging and chat services as well as light surfing, “Social-Lite” costs just US$5 for 20MB of data at 64kbps surfing speed. It complements Scoot’s existing inflight Wi-Fi plans on its Boeing 787 fleet, priced attractively at US$11.95 for one hour, US$16.95 for three hours and US$21.95 for 24 hours, without any cap on data consumed. Scoot is the only carrier in the world to offer inflight Wi-Fi across its entire fleet.
“Working with Scoot, we’ve changed the game in inflight connectivity to give guests more choices. They can opt for a broadband experience or, if they prefer, pay less for quick texting or light email services to contact friends or loved ones on ground,” said David Bruner, Vice President Global Communications Services of Panasonic Avionics Corporation.
