Booking a seat on a low-cost airline typically means sacrificing the in-flight comforts travelers have become used to over the years, such as free in-flight meal service, checked bags, seat selection and even accessories like ear plugs and blankets. Norwegian Air plans to make up for this lack in amenities by offering something other discount airlines have yet to offer: free in-flight WiFi on international flights.
While domestic and international airlines still struggle to provide this service to their passengers for little to no cost, Norwegian has been successful in equipping its shorter-haul planes with the perk for flights within Europe. Now, passengers on the fast-growing long-haul routes will be able to take advantage of the technology for little to no fee.
Norwegian will have different tiers of service: Basic service, which will be available for all passengers for free, will include just enough data to read and respond to emails and to scroll through social media feeds. Passengers who need more browsing power can upgrade to Premium access which costs $14.95 for three hours. This service is strong enough to stream media on apps like YouTube and Netflix.
To start, the service will only be available on flights among London’s Gatwick Airport, New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS).
