Sriwijaya Air Group has announced plans to provide free in-flight Wi-Fi in 2020.

Speaking to kompas.com, Joseph Adrian Saul, Sriwijaya Air’s director, said that since the company joined the Garuda Indonesia Group in November 2018, it would follow suit in providing free Wi-Fi on flights.

Citilink, Garuda’s low-cost subsidiary, launched its service on its Denpasar – Jakarta flight on Dec. 28.
