AirAsia and roKKi, a provider of inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) solutions, have together launched inflight access to Twitter on board selected AirAsia flights.

This comes as an enhancement to the existing on-board Wi-Fi service that was launched on AirAsia flights last November, and which earned the airline an entry into the Malaysian Book of Records for being the ‘First Airline to Provide Wi-Fi On-Board’ in Malaysia.

If their aircraft is equipped with the service, AirAsia passengers will be able to use the Twitter app while they fly by purchasing a roKKi Chats Instant Messaging package, which also includes access to apps such as WeChat, WhatsApp, LINE, and KakaoTalk.

The IM package is priced at RM9 for a total of 3MB data usage on these apps

 The on-board Wi-Fi service is available on almost 4,000 flights each month and will continue to increase in number as more aircraft are equipped with the service.

Adrian Lim, Chief Executive Officer of roKKi said, “We’re delighted to have Twitter join the roKKi family. Our focus has always been to provide airline partners with cost-efficient IFEC services and to ensure guests have access to exciting entertainment on board. Providing guests access to the latest Tweets from 10,000ft above sea level is another milestone for us. Chatting, whether through IM apps or social media, is an integral part of our lives and our aim is to help everyone stay connected even while they're above the clouds."

roKKi Chats is currently available on selected AirAsia aircraft with more aircraft set to be equipped with the roKKi Wi-Fi system in the coming months.
