Whether you want to read your e-mails, surf the web or shop above the clouds, there is something for everyone with the new myAustrian FlyNet® on short and medium-haul routes. Effective immediately, Austrian Airlines passengers will be able to use their mobile devices on board to test the airline’s future Internet offering at no charge. Internet has been already activated on many Airbus aircraft for Austrian Airlines passengers to test the new system at no cost. The offering of Austrian Airlines and its technology partner Inmarsat is based on the most advanced broadband satellite technology (Ka band). This ensures reliable Internet coverage on short-haul and medium-haul flights on the basis of the Inmarsat network Global Xpress (GX).
Following the successful test phase, passengers will be able to choose from three different Internet rates: FlyNet Message for EUR 3, FlyNet Surf for EUR 7 and FlyNet® Stream at a price of EUR 12 per flight.
In addition to Internet use, passengers will be able to access cost-free content online at any time such as travel guides, Austrian Airlines services and information about Austrian Airlines.
