The use of mobile devices on board


Whether you want to write e-mails, prepare for your next meeting or sort out private matters on your laptop, Lufthansa FlyNet® creates the ideal conditions for you to surf the Internet. You also have the option of making telephone calls on long-haul flights thanks to the Sky Phone.


New rule for the use of mobile devices

Good news for Lufthansa passengers who would like to use their smartphone, tablet computer and other mobile electronic devices in flight mode on board: this is now possible on far more flights than before – continuously from boarding to disembarking. The Boeing 747-8 and the Boeing 747-400, as well as the entire Airbus fleet, are approved for the extended use of mobile devices. This also applies to CD, DVD and MP3 players, eReaders and games consoles. For safety reasons you must stow your notebook computer and any devices which weigh more than 1 kg safely during take-off and landing. Until further notice the requirement for continuous use is that flight mode must be activated for devices which are capable of sending and receiving data.

Out of consideration for other passengers, it will still not be possible to make mobile phone calls on board.


Work with your laptop on board

To enable you to work with your laptop on board without restrictions, we have equipped our First und Business Class seats on long-haul flights with power sockets for which you don't need an adaptor. The power sockets (max. output 70 watt) are designed for two-pin flat European plugs and two- or three-pin US plugs.


FlyNet® – Internet on board

Lufthansa FlyNet®, our Broadband Internet service on board, is available on increasing numbers of Lufthansa long-haul flights so that you can work or surf the Web.
