Lufthansa to Offer Free Messaging on Board on Its Short- and Medium-Haul Flights

Good news for passengers who also want to be reachable above the clouds. From mid-January 2024, Lufthansa will offer unlimited free messaging on board on its short- and medium-haul flights. Travellers will then be able to send and receive as many messages as they like, including photos, on their own smartphone or tablet during the flight on aircraft of the A320 family that have WLAN – all free of charge!

Turkish Technic and Emirates have signed an aircraft maintenance agreement. Turkish Airlines will be offering free and limitless messaging services to all passengers on international flights where internet access is available, with the motto “Enjoy Limitless Messaging” through applications such as WhatsApp, Messenger or iMessage, along with others.

For all other Internet packages on board, such as streaming, the tariff will also be reduced by almost 50 per cent from mid-January.

“Lufthansa is investing around two billion euros in product and service improvements. In the process, we have implemented and planned many large, medium, and also smaller initiatives that make travelling with Lufthansa an even better experience,” says Heiko Reitz, CCO Lufthansa Airlines. “One great example is Free Messaging. I am pleased that our guests will in future be able to stay in touch with their relatives or business partners above the clouds – free of charge.”

The prerequisite for using the new free 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. A new login or registration is also possible during the flight.
