Etihad to bring in WiFi on Dublin Route

Etihad, already a strong player in the Irish market due to its involvement with Aer Lingus and strong routes from Dublin are adding an extra string to their bow. They are introducing wifi on all their long haul flights including from Dublin. The frist flight to Brussels with wifi and mobile phone connectivity took place last week and more and more of the A330 planes are being fitted

James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “‘Etihad Wi-Fly’ is a result of the 10-year, $1bn agreement we signed with Panasonic Avionics in November 2011. We continue to invest in our product and consider ways to offer our guests the most engaging and dynamic inflight entertainment options. The broadband Internet is high-speed, in line with what our guests would experience at home or at work, so we believe this will be hugely popular. By the end of Q1 2013, we will have 10 ‘Etihad Wi-Fly’-equipped aircraft, and I am pleased to announce that by the end of 2014, every single Etihad Airways aircraft will be equipped for inflight connectivity.”
