Connexion by Boeing and Scandinavian Airlines System announced the airline will offer in-flight Internet access between Seattle and Copenhagen on Airbus A340 and A330 planes by March. The service will let travelers wirelessly connect to the Web and access e-mail.

The flat rate cost for the entire flight is $29.95, or $9.95 for the first 30 minutes and 25 cents per minute after. The service is meant to help distinguish the airline amid falling prices by attracting frequent travelers looking to stay in touch while in the air.
