ViaSat has announced a new $73 Million contract with the United States Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to provide in-flight internet service on U.S. Government VC-25s (AirForce 1), C-17s, C-32s, C-37s, C-40s and the complete range of VIP and special air mission aircraft.
Norwegian says it expects to set British summer records with more than 1.3 million passengers on its 560 low-cost flights per week to America and on European routes.
The airline is now the third-largest carrier serving Gatwick and also flies out of Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has joined the European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCARE) as part of the airline organisation’s commitment to contributing to improving future aviation technologies.
EUROCARE, which is formed as a group of manufacturers, service providers, airlines, airports, aviation authorities and other stakeholders, was established in 1963. It has developed performance specifications and helped standardise aviation technologies.
Low-cost airline Norwegian has partnered with No1 Lounges to offer Norwegian Reward members flying from the UK access to lounges at Gatwick, Edinburg, Birmingham and Heathrow airports.
As an added treat, passengers who buy lounge access get Premium Security lane access, avoiding the queues.
