Scandinavian Airlines announces internet access in business class


Scandinavian Airlines is making it easier for those who purchase business class tickets to finish the last touches on their presentation while in the air.

The airline has announced that it will be introducing internet access to its business class cabins on both long- and short-haul flights, starting in April.

It will also offer internet and mobile services on European and intercontinental routes,making the airline one of the first to offer the service. Oman Air was the first airline to offer both mobile voice clals and broadband internet when it launched the program on its A330 earlier this year.

Lufthansa is reintroducing its on-board internet later this year, while other airlines line American, Delta and Singapore Airlines are planning on introducing the service as well.

On Scandinavia, the service will be free of charge for those who purchase business class tickets.

“We are currently negotiating with a number of service providers and aim to offer our premium customers free internet onboard our flights, starting already in April next year. We are always looking for innovative ways to improve the travel experience for our customers. This in-flight broadband system allows us to customize a suite of Wi-Fi services for our customers – from movies and other entertainment for our leisure travellers to communication tools for our business travellers,” said Robin Kamark the COO of the airline.
