Norwegian Air Shuttle to equip fleet with high-speed in-flight broadband

Row 44 to begin installing its broadband system in fourth quarter of 2009

By CBR Staff Writer

Norway-based low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle has announced that it is equipping its entire fleet with high-speed in-flight broadband developed by Row 44, a US-based provider of airborne broadband service for commercial aircraft.

The airline has said that it will offer passengers uninterrupted broadband services, internet browsing, live international television, movies, music, mobile phones, texting, and e-commerce-to all of the 84 destinations across Europe.

In addition to its current fleet, Norwegian Air Shuttle has orders for nearly 50 new planes, all of which the airline will equip with Row 44’s broadband service. Row 44 will begin installing its broadband system on Norwegian planes in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Bjorn Kjos, chief executive officer of Norwegian Air Shuttle, said: Row 44’s system will help us add exciting new productivity and entertainment services to our flights, creating more satisfied and loyal passengers and crew, giving Norwegian a strong competitive advantage, and adding significantly to our bottom line.

Norwegian Air Shuttle is a low-fare, point-to-point airline, which operates a total of 130 routes. It has 24 aircraft of Boeing 737-300 with 148 seats.
