SAS is launching new high speed WiFi on its short and medium haul routes between Scandinavia and Europe. This means that passengers can now stream their favorite movies, use social media, send images from their seat or answer their emails.
SAS’ WiFi is based on a satellite communication system supplied by Viasat Inc.; a global company from California, USA, that supplies internet services to private and public organizations, the military and airlines, including US government aircraft, Qantas and Jetblue.
SAS’ WiFi has already been installed in 28 aircraft, and by September, around 40 aircraft will have the new high speed WiFi installed. SAS expects the vast majority of its fleet to be WiFi enabled by the first quarter of 2020.Email Post to a Friend
