Norwegian offers free Wi-Fi on intercontinental flights

Norwegian has upgraded the passenger experience for long-haul customers with the introduction of inflight Wi-Fi in its aircraft.

The low-cost long-haul airline is the first to offer free Wi-Fi on all European routes in 2011 and the first European airline to successfully offer live television in the skies in 2015. 

The customers flying between Europe, USA, South America and Asia will be now able to stay connected in the skies with the rollout of high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity on the carrier’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and 737 MAX aircraft.

More than 50 per cent of the 787-9 Dreamliner fleet is expected to offer in-flight connectivity by 2020. The rollout of Wi-Fi on the airline’s Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will commence from mid-January 2019.

The economy and premium customers on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and 737 MAX will have the choice of two inflight Wi-Fi packages - Basic and Premium.

The Basic option is free and will allow customers to browse the web, stay-up-to-date on social media, send and receive emails and instant messages for the full length of the flight. Wheras the premium option will be fast enough to stream music, movies and television shows on Netflix, YouTube and Hulu among others.

Premium high-speed Wi-Fi will be available at an introductory price of $14.95 USD / €12.95 EUR for a three-hour package.

Boris Bubresko, vice president - business development, said: “We’re continuously improving the inflight customer experience and we’re delighted to be the first airline offering free Wi-Fi for the full duration of long-haul flights.

“Millions of Norwegian customers have already enjoyed free Wi-Fi 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.

“From being the first European airline to launch free Wi-Fi on all short-haul flights followed by free live television, Norwegian’s rollout of high-quality inflight broadband services will offer business and leisure travellers even greater value at affordable fares.”
