A new partnership with Panasonic Aviation will allow laptop and smartphone users to once again connect at 35,000 feet. While finding an airline that offers onboard Wi-Fi is certainly more common these days, Lufthansa’s new Wi-Fi will offer something that others do not, the ability for users to surf the net over water, something that is especially important to business travelers flying to Europe from the U.S.
Test phases of the new service are set to begin in the spring, and many flights will offer connectivity as soon as this summer. The airline hopes to have most of its fleet outfitted with Wi-Fi capability by the end of the year. Lufthansa’s new A380 jets will also be outfitted with Wi-Fi connectivity, as well.
