Aer Lingus launches inflight wi-fi service

AER Lingus has launched wi-fi access for mobile products like phones, laptops and tables on its transatlantic flights after several months of trials.

Business class flyers will get the service for free while prices start at €10.95 for one hour and €19.95 for 24 hours.

Seven of the airline’s A330 aircraft have been fitted with satellite technology provided by Panasonic Corporation.

While voice calls are not permitted, GSM services are being provided in association with AeroMobile.

Aer Lingus is at the forefront of in-cabin internet access, being just the second European airline to introduce internet access on transatlantic flights,” said Aer Lingus chief commercial manager Stephen Kavanagh.

“This is another choice we are offering our customers to enhance their Aer Lingus experience. Having direct internet access on flights of up to ten hours in duration, will be of huge benefit to our customers, in particular to business customers,” he said.

In-flight wi-fi is fairly widespread among US carriers, but its growth in other parts of the world is much slower.
