Now Stay Connected On India Flights With Lufthansa

Travellers booking air tickets on flights to India with Lufthansa would now be able to stay connected as the German carrier is providing in-flight Wi-Fi broadband to the flyers. Lufthansa will be one of the first airlines to offer in-flight Internet on India skies.

India-bound travellers taking flights tickets to the Asian country would be able to take advantage of the service, irrespective of the travel class. One will be able to surf the Internet on their laptops and tablets in-flight. In some time to come, the airline hopes to extend Wi-Fi to the mobiles too. This will allow flyers with flights tickets to text message and transfer data while in the aircraft.

For India bound flights, Lufthansa will provide the Internet services on four routes. Travellers taking air tickets on Delhi-Munich, Mumbai-Frankfurt, Mumbai-Munich and Chennai-Frankfurt flights will have these services. One will have to pay an additional 10.95 Euros along with the cost of air tickets for Internet services for one hour. For those flyers wanting to have the services for 24 hours, one will have to pay 19.95 Euros. One can get these services extended to airline lounges and long-haul flights of the operator. 

There are reports that more number of airlines that offer flights tickets to the various cities of India are looking to offer in-flight Internet to ticket buyers. However, there have been issues concerning the approval from regulatory authorities in India.
