National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines will offer wifi services in some of its flights starting from October 10, becoming the first Vietnamese airline to do so, announced the carrier on October 7.

Passengers will be able to access the service in Vietnam Airlines’ flights using Airbus A350 in the air routes linking Hanoi with Ho Chi Minh City, Shanghai, Osaka; and Ho Chi Minh City with Osaka and Singapore.

At a price between 2.95 - 29.95 USD, passengers can choose suitable packages with a maximum capacity of 80 MB.

From the launch of the new services to the end of this year, the carrier will offer 30 minutes of free wifi which enables passengers to send text messages during their flights.

The airline will work to offer the service in other Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 aircraft with faster speed in the coming time.

It is now operating 94 routes to 21 domestic and 29 international destinations with an average of 400 flights per day, connecting the world’s major cities to travel destinations in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.
