Norwegian Air to offer in-flight phone service

OSLO (Reuters) - Budget airline Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA said on Tuesday it will offer mobile phone and wireless Internet services on flights later this year.

The company will also provide travel information for passengers, broadband telephone services and mobile banking.

The on-board services, to be launched in the fourth quarter, will be provided by a new subsidiary, Call Norwegian AS.

“Call Norwegian will be an Internet-based mobile telephone company, and the products will be focused on primary mobile telephone services (network service),” Norwegian Air Shuttle said in a statement.
