We are so connected with our devices that the idea of being without wifi and service while flying with Air France can be stressful. Luckily for passengers, Air France has wifi available on select flights. Here’s what you need to know.

Air France and Wifi

At this time, not all Air France flights have wifi on board, so if your flight is shorter, you may be out of pocket during your flight. If your flight has wifi, you can choose from three options.

  • Message pass, which allows you to use text messaging apps for free during your flights.
  • Surf pass, which allows you to check email and use the internet during your flight.
  • Stream pass, which allows you to watch movies over wifi. This is the fastest wifi available on the flight and will prevent buffering.

You will have to pay a small fee for the surf pass, and the stream pass to use these in-flight features. If you do not want to, you can enjoy the complimentary in-flight entertainment or download your content locally before taking off.

Does Inflight Wifi Work?

Inflight wifi can be spotty, so even if you purchase it, it may not work. If this is the case, you will receive a refund. It’s best to have a backup plan when it comes to inflight wifi, so make sure that you have what you need to work on or watch downloaded locally on your device.


Air France has Wifi that passengers can purchase, as well as a free option that allows passengers to text their family and friends.
