Internet on holiday planes: These are the most expensive airlines

The anticipation of the holiday is great, but the flight is long? If you want to while away the time surfing the Internet, you need WiFi – and that can get really expensive.

The language learning platform Preply has determined which airlines are best suited for surfing, working and learning and where passengers can save the most. For the comparison, the tariffs and the duration of use of the Internet offers from more than 35 airlines were recorded and compared. The price differences were up to 60 euros. Here are the results in detail.

These are the five most expensive airlines

The Internet offers at Delta Air Lines are the most expensive. Air travelers pay the equivalent of EUR 45.47 for domestic flights and EUR 63.67 for international flights for the mobile WLAN subscription model.

Even with the airline Swiss International Air Lines, passengers have to dig deep into their pockets. According to Preply, the most expensive WLAN tariff costs 59.86 euros. Just behind is American Airlines, where a maximum of 54.23 euros are due for a subscription of two months.

The top 5 most expensive Internet offers are completed by Air Canada and Air Europa with maximum prices of 44.07 euros and 35 euros.

These airlines offer the cheapest Wi-Fi

With three of the airlines examined, you can surf the Internet free of charge during the flight. They are Air China, JetBlue and NokAir. Air China, however, prohibits the use of smartphones.

The airline Vueling is also cheap, charging only 5.99 euros for the use of the wireless connection. Norwegian Air charges a fee of only 8 euros for the entire flight after free internet use for 15 minutes. With the airline Eurowings, passengers surf the entire duration of the flight for 9.90 euros.

Some airlines also offer free use for their members. These include Etihad Airways, Emirates, Iberia, Singapore Airlines, Icelandair, Scandinavian Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

This is Preply

Preply offers a learning platform with 140 language tutors from over 200 countries. The aim is to give learners the opportunity to find professional foreign language tutors online quickly and easily and to start their flexible and individual language course.

There is no WiFi here at all

According to Preply, six of the airlines examined do not offer the possibility of a WLAN connection. Electrical devices on flights operated by TUIFly, SunExpress, Brussels Airlines, Croatia Airlines, Wizz Air and Czech Airlines must either be switched off or set to flight mode. These restrictions are justified on security grounds.

Turkish Airlines offers the widest range of fares

Almost all airlines have several tariffs with different data volumes and prices for mobile WiFi. The leader is the airline Turkish Airlines, where five different tariffs can be selected.

Depending on the flight, the prices vary from a minimum of 4.53 euros to a maximum of 31.72 euros. In addition, Tap Air Portugal offers four fare options, with messaging for Business Class travelers even being free.
