How It Works

To access this cutting-edge service, passengers need to log into FlyNet using their Miles & More service card number or their email address registered with the Lufthansa Group Travel ID.

What’s more, if you haven’t logged in before takeoff, no worries—you can create a new login or register mid-flight. Lufthansa ensures that staying connected is seamless and hassle-free.

Reduced Tariffs for Internet Packages

But that’s not all! Lufthansa’s commitment to enhancing passenger experience extends beyond messaging.

From mid-January, the airline is slashing prices for other internet packages, including streaming, by a whopping 50 percent.

 It’s a move that speaks volumes about their dedication to keeping passengers entertained and connected during their journey.

Breaking Down the Tariff Reduction

Whether you’re a streaming enthusiast or someone who needs a stable internet connection for work, Lufthansa’s reduced tariffs make in-flight internet access more affordable than ever.

The airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, Heiko Reitz, emphasizes this commitment, stating, “Lufthansa is investing around two billion euros in product and service improvements.”

Heiko Reitz, CCO of Lufthansa Airlines, sheds light on the motivation behind these advancements. “In the process, we have implemented and planned many large, medium, and also smaller initiatives that make traveling with Lufthansa an even better experience.”

Free messaging is a testament to their commitment to making air travel not just about reaching a destination but enjoying the journey.
