Once you’ve flown with in-flight Internet you can’t go back. So this year when the prices changed dramatically many frequent travellers were upset. We’ve got a man in the air right now testing out a whole new way to connect, saving you big bucks.
Not so long ago, you could board an Etihad flight to Europe and connect to WiFi for the duration of the flight for around $26. Today, if you get on the plane then connect in-flight you’ll be up for a lower cost $21 access, but that will only get you 180MB of data. Trust me, that lasts about 60 minutes if you’re churning through emails and the web.
So here’s a hack for the business traveller you’re going to love. You can buy an unlimited access hotspot pass on a one to six month deal, for as little as $15.
One month access will cost you $21, but if you sign up for a six month pass it will come down to $15.
Consider a one week business trip to Europe. Last year it would have cost you over $50 to have WiFi on the plane there and back. Today, you can get that same access for just $15 – and use it on more than just those two flights.
The CPH Travel WiFi hotspot pass works on a bunch of airlines, as well as WiFi hotspots around the world.
Here’s the airlines covered by the CPH Hotspots:

You need to sign up before the flight, get access and install the app. You can use it on three devices in the flight, and the access is managed through the app.
Huge savings, perfect for the regular or business traveller.
