With "Inflight," Deutsche Telekom has been giving air travelers fast Internet access on more and more international routes since 2011. Lufthansa was the premiere partner.
Deutsche Telekom's "Inflight" service is available on many routes operated by Lufthansa, KLM/Air France, Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Japan Airlines and American Airlines and others. All users need is a WiFi-capable notebook, tablet PC or smartphone.
With Deutsche Telekom's airborne HotSpot, users can surf the Internet on board just as conveniently as at home. Simply activate WiFi on a notebook, tablet PC or smartphone, select the HotSpot and register or log in. The service is billed through a credit card or the user's next Deutsche Telekom bill.
Latest news free of charge Non-Telekom customers can pay through their roaming partners or purchase vouchers. In addition to the fee-based Internet access, Lufthansa offers its passengers "FlyNet" portal with latest news free of charge. Other airlines have similar offers.
