Wi-fi for Finnair

Finnair's Board of Directors has approved an investment programme for bringing wi-fi connectivity to the majority of the airline's wide-body and narrow-body fleet.

"This investment will enable us to offer a wide array of new services to our customers, ranging from inflight entertainment to inflight sales and ancillaries," says Pekka Vauramo, CEO of Finnair.

Finnair will introduce its first onboard wi-fi service in autumn 2015, with the arrival of the first Finnair A350 XWB aircraft. In 2016, the company will start wi-fi installations in Finnair's Airbus A330 long haul aircraft as well as its European short haul Airbus fleet.  Installations are expected to be completed by 2018. 

Wi-fi has now become a pre-requisite for long haul airline operations and also on many regional operations.  British Airways has still to be equipped although it has limited services on its London City – New York flights.   www.finnair.com
