Which airlines offer inflight WiFi?

Inflight WiFi is important for flying nowadays, and is something I use quite often. In fact, I subscribe to a monthly GoGo subscription whereby I receive unlimited, free wifi aboard all US domestic GoGo equipped aircraft. Though it’s steep at about $60 a month, I find the service to be useful, especially on long-haul flights.

When traveling internationally, it’s a different story as GoGo isn’t always the preferred provider. Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether your airline offers inflight WiFI, what the charges are, and what aircraft the service is installed on.

To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of the most popular airlines with inflight wifi service, and the known details about the aircrafts it is installed on, the provider, and the fees associated. This information is current as of this post.

You’ll find this table as a resource on the resource tab above, making it a go-to place for the latest information as its updated over time.
