Free Trial Period for Passengers
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.
At present, ten of the 31 Austrian Airlines Airbus jets have already been equipped with Internet technology. Internet has been activated on five of these planes for Austrian Airlines passengers to test the new system at no cost.
Following the successful test phase, passengers will be able to choose from three different Internet rates. 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.com.
Whether reading emails, chatting with friends or shopping above the clouds – there's something for everyone: myAustrian FlyNet will soon offer various data packages.
The upgraded myAustrian aircraft can be recognised by a Wi-Fi symbol. Brochures explaining how to use the internet on board in just a few steps can be found in the seat-back pockets.
You can connect to our board server via Wi-Fi right after boarding and use our free FlyNet portal.
Once the aircraft has reached cruising altitude, you can choose from three Service Packages, which are available for a fee.
As requested by a majority of our customers, phone calls will still not be possible on board the aircraft.
** Sales will start in the first quarter of 2017
