Finnair is planning to offer wifi across its long-haul fleet by May 2017.
The carrier introduced wifi services on its new A350 XWB aircraft in late 2015, and will begin fitting the technology to its A330 aircraft in October.
The Oneworld member intends to install wifi on the majority of its long and short-haul fleet by 2018, at a cost of around €30 million.
Finnair’s wifi access is free for business class passengers, as well as Finnair Plus Gold and Platinum customers, plus Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald cardholders.
Economy passengers can purchase access for €5 per hour, or €15 for the full duration of the flight.
Piia Karhu, Finnair’s senior vice president of customer experience development, said: “In May 2017, our customers will be able to enjoy wireless network connection onboard all of our long-haul fleet.
“In addition to Internet access, we will have a broad offering of inflight entertainment, shopping opportunities, real-time news content and other additional services in Finnair’s free of charge Nordic Sky portal.”
