Why Bitebird?

As being among the world’s leading airlines, it is only natural for us to think of all possible solutions to make your journey more enjoyable, not only in the air, but also on the ground. We know that not having internet is among the biggest fear and stress factor for travelers. We decided to give an alternative choice to our customers, enabling a secure, easy and seamless internet connection around the world.

Using roaming abroad with your home country’s phone plan is a real luxury. The Wi-Fi network, while more affordable, often has a weak signal or can be downright unavailable. Connecting to a Wi-Fi network can turn into an obstacle race, with logins, codes and instructions, sometimes only available in the local language. And let’s not mention the security risk of using a public hotspot, dangerously giving access to your data.

That’s why we imagined the ideal partner for your trips: Bitebird.
