This is how FlyNet® works
Using FlyNet® with one's own tablet, laptop or smartphone is persuasively simple: you connect to Deutsche Telekom's hotspot via Wi-Fi and use it just like a public hotspot on terra firma. After opening the browser, you are automatically taken to the free Lufthansa FlyNet® portal. This portal offers numerous complimentary services and facilities and access to free the Internet options provided by German Telekom. After 15 minutes of inactivity, the Internet connection is automatically terminated. In order to continue surfing, you have to recall the Telekom hotspot and log in again. Possibly another submission of user name and password is necessary to reconnect to the network. Various tariffs and payment options are offered for the use of the Internet. For more information regarding use and payment, go to: www.lufthansa.com/de/en/Fly-Net.
Thanks to FlyNet®, connection via the GSM mobile service is also possible. After reaching cruise altitude, it enables users to send and receive texts messages and MMS and to transfer data using smartphones. The prerequisite for this is that the respective mobile operator has a roaming agreement with our partner AeroMobile. The fees for use will vary depending on the mobile operator and users will be invoiced via their own cell phone bill.
