SAUDIA is the first and only airline in the world to provide a free social messaging plan that includes five of the most popular and widely used applications.
Included in the plan is texting up to 10 MBs, which can be used on any of the included five chatting applications: WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage, and now – Instagram chat and WeChat.
As of May last year, guests have had the option to log on to the free messaging plan onboard to connect with family and friends while inflight.
Ever since, the highly-popular free messaging plan has become widely used onboard SAUDIA flights, with now more than 85% of passengers connecting onto the simple, easy to use plan.
