Live TV Debuts on Norwegian Air Caribbean-Bound Flights from U.S.


LOS ANGELES: Norwegian Air Shuttle’s flights from the U.S. to the Caribbean now include in-flight live TV following a deal with Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE).

Free access to Bloomberg Television and the NFL Network launched on flights from Boston’s Logan International Airport, New York’s JFK and Baltimore-Washington International Airport to both Martinique and Guadeloupe. The channels will be available through May.

“This live television trial with Global Eagle is a great way to mark the first Norwegian short-haul flights from the U.S. to the Caribbean and a natural extension of our milestone live-television trials announced across Europe last month,” said Thomas Ramdahl, the chief commercial officer for Norwegian. “Our new routes to the Caribbean now offer more content options, a better overall passenger experience, and exciting sponsorship and advertising opportunities aboard the GEE IFEC platform.”

“Live television is increasingly a top choice among airline passengers who want to be informed and entertained in the sky, and a great offering aboard Norwegian Air Shuttle’s newest routes from the U.S.,” noted Walé Adepoju, the chief commercial officer for GEE. “This latest live-TV trial is an innovative collaborative effort between NAS and GEE and a noteworthy milestone as we prepare to deliver the next generation of in-flight entertainment and connectivity around the world.”
