Norweigan becomes first budget airline to offer free wifi long-haul

Passengers can now surf the web, browse social media and use email while in the air.  

Norwegian has become the first low-cost airline to offer free wifi aboard long haul flights. 

Provided by inflight connectivity platform Cabin Connect, the service will allow passengers to browse the web, stay up-to-date on social media and keep in touch with family and friends via text or email. 

The technology is currently being rolled out across their entire fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and 737 Max aircrafts. 

It’s estimated that over half of them will be able to offer free inflight wifi by 2020. 

“Millions of Norwegian customers have already enjoyed free WiFi over the skies of Europe and now long-haul passengers can continue to rely on free and high-speed internet connectivity that will enhance and personalise their journeys,” said Boris Bubresko, Norwegian’s vice president of business development. 

A second premium option is also available for purchase starting at just over £11 for three hours which is capable of supporting music and video streaming. 

The Scandinavian carrier currently operates 15 non-stop routes across Europe, USA, South America and Asia.
