Improved in-flight Wi-Fi is to be introduced by Norwegian on its short-haul fleet.
The enhanced connectivity on board the budget airline’s fleet of Boeing 737-800s is due to become available by the middle of February.
Three premium Wi-Fi packages will be available, with one free option for web browsing, email and text messaging.
Passengers will have to pay €5 per device for faster web browsing and social media access.
The top package costs €12 including the ability to stream TV shows, films and music content on services such as Netflix, YouTube and Spotify.
The airline’s chief commercial officer Helga Bollmann Leknes said: “We’re continuing to upgrade the passenger experience by commencing the rollout of premium Wi-Fi on our Boeing 737-800 fleet that will give our customers improved connectivity across our global fleet.
“We set an industry first in 2011 by being the first European airline to offer free Wi-Fi on all European flights and from today, thousands of passengers daily will get to stay connected in the skies with a faster Wi-Fi connection than ever before flying Norwegian.”
The carrier recently started introducing Wi-Fi to its long-haul Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, where two options are available.
Norwegian expects to have Wi-Fi available on half of its Dreamliner fleet by next year.
