Internet access for all Lufthansa Group passengers in the future

Lufthansa Group equips more than 150 additional short and medium-haul aircraft with broadband Internet access.

In future, all passengers travelling on European routes will have the reliable option of using 
Wi-Fi on board. The Lufthansa Group will therefore continue to equip its short and medium-haul aircraft with broadband internet on three of its airlines this year, in total more than 150 aircraft.

After Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings, SWISS will thus be the next airline in the Lufthansa Group to introduce in-flight internet for its passengers on short- and medium-haul aircraft. Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings have been offering their passengers broadband internet on many short- and medium-haul flights since 2017.

New is that Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines are now offering their guests unlimited free messaging on aircraft already equipped with internet access. Travellers can send and receive as many messages as they like on their own smartphone or tablet free of charge during the flight. The prerequisite for using this service is logging into FlyNet with a Miles & More service card number or with an e-mail address registered with the Lufthansa Group Travel ID. For all other on-board internet packages, such as the faster Premium access, now available from just six euros, the price was reduced by almost 50 per cent at the beginning of the year.
