Said to be the first of its kind among low-cost carriers in Indonesia, the service, named Rokki, a collaboration with internet service provider Indosat Ooredoo Business, will be available on select domestic and international flights with the QZ code.
“We are very proud to become the first low-cost carrier in Indonesia to launch such a service,” said AirAsia Group CEO in Indonesia Dendy Kurniawan in a press release. “The Rokki service can be accessed directly on passengers’ devices, allowing them to stay connected anytime, anywhere.”
To use the Rokki service, passengers must activate the Wi-Fi feature on their mobile phone or tablet, then connect their device to WiFi AirAsia-Rokki and access the website www.rokki.com to enjoy inflight entertainment, such as films and music, and view the shopping catalogue.
Two package options are available for the service - the 3MB chat package priced at 30,000 rupiah (Bt73) and the Internet package, offering a capacity of 10MB for 60,000 rupiah.
The Wi-Fi service is currently available on AirAsia Indonesia's PK-AXV aircraft, which serve flights to domestic and international destinations, including Bali, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore and Macau.
The Rokki service was first introduced in Malaysia in 2014 on flights with the AK code.
Passengers will be able to identify whether their flight is equipped with the service by stickers placed on their seats as well as an announcement from the cabin crew.
According to kompas.com, AirAsia Indonesia aims to offer the service on 10 aircraft by next year.
