Now your clients can enjoy gate-to-gate WiFi connectivity on board Norwegian flights. Passengers on any route across Norwegian’s global network will now be able to stay connected for the entire duration of their flight from pushback to arrival at the destination gate.

Previously, flights had to reach an altitude of 10,000 ft. before the WiFi network was activated; now they will have access the moment they are seated.

“We know how important it is for our passengers to have internet access. Until recently, flights were hour-long black holes when it comes to internet coverage. Now, Norwegian makes it possible to be online from the moment you board the aircraft until you step outside again. We launched free Wi-Fi on board in 2011 and since millions of passengers have been surfing the internet on board, so are looking very much forward to offering the new gate-to-gate experience to our passengers”, says chief customer and digital officer at Norwegian, Kurt Simonsen in press materials.

As of today, gate-to-gate WiFi is available for all Norwegian passengers on the entire WiFi enabled fleet servicing short and long-haul flights. Customers have two choices – Basic free Wi-Fi for the full duration of long-haul flights and a premium high-speed option, fast enough to stream television shows and movies.

Norwegian expects to have the rollout of Wi-Fi completed on 50 per cent of its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft by 2020.

The carrier has also introduced premium WiFi on European flights, upgrading the existing WiFi experience with high-speed connections fast enough for passengers to stream video content. For more information, visit norwegian.com.
