Austrian Airlines tests flight shopping platform SKYdeals

Christian Fernsby |
Austrian Airlines is now testing a new in-flight shopping service for passengers.

Topics: AUSTRIAN AIRLINES   

Via FlyNet, the internet portal on board the Austrian Airlines Airbus fleet, guests have free access to the SKYdeals shopping platform during their flight within Europe.

With just one click via the personal mobile device on the online marketplace, information such as destination and flight route is transmitted to SKYdeals and the so-called "shoppertainment" can begin.

On the in-flight shopping platform, passengers will find a selection of products related to the respective destination or route. There are two categories:

• FLY OVER: Passengers receive exclusive discounts on typical products of the country just flown over, for example Swiss chocolate.
• QUICK SALES / PRIVATE SALES: Passengers have access to exclusive fashion, beauty and accessories offers.

Ordering and payment is contactless online directly via the SKYdeals platform. The purchase is conveniently delivered by post to the desired address.

At the start of the test phase, passengers will receive a FlyNet Mail&Surf voucher after the sale is completed. Lufthansa, like Austrian Airlines, is also testing the new in-flight shopping experience.
