AirAsia flies with high-speed Wi-Fi

A Wi-Fi-equipped wide-body A330 from AirAsia has flown from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) to Tokyo Narita (NRT) for the first time. The high-speed connectivity service allows guests to stream videos and stay up-to-date with social media while 35,000 feet in the air.

The inaugural flight took to the skies after a celebratory send-off by AirAsia Chief Executive Officer Benyamin Ismail last week at KUL Terminal 2. “We are very proud to provide more options for our guests travelling to Tokyo, Japan,” he said, in a press release from the company. “This new service signifies our commitment to accelerating our growth in Japan and we are confident the route will be popular, especially for guests exploring Tokyo and the neighbouring northeast region in Tohoku.”

The four weekly return services are estimated to increase the number of travelers through both airports, right in time for Visit Malaysia 2020 and the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.
