AirAsia BIG members to enjoy free Internet onboard flights starting today

Good news for AirAsia BIG members. You won't have to miss a single important message while up in the air as all AirAsia BIG members will be given a free 2MB Chats Plan for access to WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE, KakaoTalk and Viber applications.

Sorry to those trying to escape from receiving or sending work-related messages though. Time to think of a new excuse. 

BIG members will get this privilege every time they fly on Rokki-enabled flights starting today. Rokki is an in-flight entertainment and connectivity platform that offers guests free entertainment, music, games and news, as well as shopping features.

To enjoy this feature, BIG members only need to connect to Rokki WiFi during the flight and log in to the Rokki portal using their AirAsia BIG login details to automatically redeem the plan.

"Connectivity is integral to our lives, and this is something Rokki understands implicitly. We hope that this free in-flight Internet will help guests stay in touch with their friends and family and get the latest updates no matter where they are," said Rokki CEO, Lalitha Sivanaser in a statement.

"Therefore, to ensure guests can always stay connected, Rokki is continuously advancing the digital transformation on board, further enhancing the inflight portal that offers entertainment, news, and exciting shopping deals on their personal mobile devices while flying." added Lalitha.

There currently are 44 Rokki-enabled AirAsia aircrafts in service. For more information, visit airasiabig.com.
