Travellers want wifi in hotels to be free, but Asian travellers happy to pay for in-flight web
While two-thirds of hotels in Europe now offer free wifi, much to the relief of many travellers, their counterparts in India and Singapore have a vastly different opinion when it comes in-flight connections.
A survey conducted by Skyscanner amongst 1,000 Indian travellers reveals that 72% are willing to pay for wifi services in-flight.
The survey was conducted at a time when the Indian government approved unbundling services for Indian carriers, allowing airlines to charge for extra services like check-in baggages, special seats in flight.
When the Indian low cost carriers were resorting to cost cutting measures to strengthen their bottom line, the survey reveals several psychographic changes in the way Indians were willing to spend on their flights.
