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.


Use mobile devices throughout the flight

Since the beginning of this year it has been possible to use mobile devices during an entire flight on the Boeing 747-8. From 1 March, this will also apply to the Lufthansa Airbus fleet. Passengers will be able to use their smartphones, tablet computers and other electronic devices from gate to gate, provided that these do not send or receive. This also applies to CD, DVD and MP3 players, eReaders and games consoles. However, notebooks must be switched off as before during take-off and landing. In the near future Lufthansa also plans to get approval for the use of devices in online mode for all phases of the flight and all types of aircraft.

We will continue to block telephone calls out of consideration for other passengers.


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.
