Row 44, of Westlake Village, Calif., will equip Icelandair’s fleet of 757-200s and 757-300s with in-flight satcom systems. The service will enable Icelandair‘s passengers to use their own Wi-Fi-enabled devices to connect to the internet. The fleet installation is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2012 and to be completed in the fall of 2013.
“Icelandair has built a system of outstanding flight services between Iceland and other countries, and Row 44 now allows us to continue to build on that system, and our present inflight entertainment system, by equipping our flights with an outstanding passenger experience inside the cabin,” said Birkir Hólm Guðnason, Icelandair CEO. “Row 44 was the only provider to offer the breadth and depth of services we favored that will allow our customers to get connected and be entertained, and to do so in a way that we believe they desire – straight to their own devices.”
