SAS has launched new high speed Wi-Fi service on its short and medium haul routes between Scandinavia and Europe.
“We have made a big investment that will ensure that our customers enjoy the best in-flight experience. Together with our recent fleet order, this will strengthen SAS’ competitiveness even further and maintain our strong position in the Scandinavian market,” said Rickard Gustafson, president and CEO of SAS.
SAS WiFi, based on the system supplied by Viasat, has already been installed in 28 aircraft, and by September, around 40 aircraft will have the new high speed Wi-Fi installed. SAS expects the vast majority of its fleet to be Wi-Fi enabled by the first quarter of 2020.
“Fast and stable Wi-Fi connection is a service passengers ask for today. Regardless if you want to watch a movie, stay connected with friends and family or work on-board, you require a reliable highspeed connection. By this investment we continue to deliver on our promise to make life easier for our customers” added Gustafson.
Travellers in SAS Plus, EuroBonus Diamond and Gold members enjoy free Wi-Fi all the way. Passengers in Go pay €4.90 (or the equivalent in other currencies). Silver members will be offered free Wi-Fi in the launch campaign period from May to 19 August.
