Iceland’s leading airline, Icelandair, a subsidiary of Icelandair Group, recently signed a contract with the American company Row 44 for the installation of Wi-Fi internet in all of its aircraft.
Once the wireless connection has been installed, Icelandair passengers will be able to log on and surf the Internet at 30,000ft over the Atlantic.
“We are now focusing our efforts on providing customers with a unique service. All of our aircraft will still be fully equipped with the in-flight entertainment system – the contract with Row 44 is just an additional element for providing our customers with a unique service and comfortable onboard experience,” explained Björgólfur Jóhannsson, President of Icelandair Group.
Frederick St. Amour, Vice-President of Row 44, and Birkir Hólm Guðnason, CEO of Icelandair, recently signed the contract and the installation process is expected to begin later this year – the Wi-Fi connection is due to be fully implemented by autumn 2013.
The wireless connection will be available on all of the airline’s flights to and from the UK, the U.S, Scandinavia, and Continental Europe.
