Icelandair internet

Travellers who use Icelandair’s very competitive fares when visiting the US from Europe will have another benefit added by the end of the year.  The carrier has signed a contract with Row 44, a leader in commercial in-flight broadband service, to equip Icelandair's fleet with high-speed wi-fi.

This new service will enable passengers to use their own wi-fi enabled devices to connect to the internet while flying with Icelandair.  The fleet installation is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2012 and to be completed in the fall of 2013.  With the completion of installation, Icelandair will be first North Atlantic carrier to offer wi-fi fleet wide.

"Icelandair currently offers leather seats and personal in-flight entertainment systems for all passengers.  The contract with Row 44 will enable us to increase the service level and enhance the passenger onboard experience", said Thorsteinn Egilsson, Icelandair's General Manager – The Americas.

This year Icelandair celebrates 75 years of aviation and flies all year round to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Denver and Seattle with seasonal service's from Minneapolis-St Paul, Washington DC, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto.  Connections through Icelandair's hub at Keflavik are available to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK and Continental Europe. www.icelandair.com
