Emirates has begun connecting wi-fi service across its Airbus A380 fleet.

The service will initially launch on 11 of Emirates’ 19 A380s and will eventually be extended to the entire fleet of 71 A380s the airline currently has on order.

In-flight data plans are available through service provider OnAir starting a $7.50 for mobile devices and $15 for laptops. Emirates began testing wi-fi service on A380s last year.


Emirates says it also allows mobile phone usage on board 91 of its aircraft.
