Lufthansa Group member Swiss says it is now ready to roll out onboard wifi services on the narrow body aircraft in its fleet. In a press statement, the airline says that it is introducing wifi in its A220 and A320 airplanes. 

Lufthansa Group has already been installing broadband on Lufthansa, Austrian and Eurowings short and medium-haul planes. Swiss says that work will commence in the fourth quarter of 2024, and when complete, all the 150 aircraft in Lufthansa Group will offer wifi connectivity.

The news follow the introduction of free inflight messaging for Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines customers on short and medium-haul wifi-enabled aircraft this month.

The statement adds that customers on eligible flights can now send and receive an unlimited number of messages, including photos, on their smartphone or tablet.

The only prerequisite for using the new service is logging into FlyNet with a Miles & More card number, or with an email address registered with the Lufthansa Group Travel ID. Those customers without one of these will be able to register inflight.

Swiss passengers will benefit from free inflight messaging as aircraft are fitted with wifi connectivity. Lufthansa Group also said that newly equipped aircraft would feature hybrid European Aviation Network technology installed by Viasat, which sees an S-band satellite provide Europe-wide coverage, with supplementary ground components from Deutsche Telekom and terrestrial radio towers with 4G LTE technology providing additional capacity.
