Internet on SAS flight

In 2004, Scandinavian Airlines plans to become the first airline to offer Internet connection on board intercontinental flights.
      “Our home market is the world’s most IT-dense region, so it is completely natural that we want to offer travelers the opportunity to use electronic equipment whenever possible,” says Ulf Ingnäs, head of Product Management In-flight, Scandinavian Airlines.
      Scandinavian Airlines has also just allowed the use of some mobile phone functions during flight. In the so-called flight-safe mode, the mobile phone is switched on without sending or receiving signals and won’t therefore affect flight security.
      It is the latest mobile phones, such as the Sony Ericsson P800, which have this flight-safe mode. With this, the traveler on board a SAS flight can use a mobile phone to update his or her diary, write e-mail and take notes, edit documents, play games, listen to music and even take photos with a built-in camera – everything except make a phone call.
      “The objective is to meet the demand of customers to be able to work and communicate while traveling on land or in the air,” says Ulf Ingnäs.
