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

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