Lufthansa announced that it will begin to test in-flight Wi-Fi on short- and medium-haul flights this year, starting with five Lufthansa and Aistrian Airlines Airbus A320s.

The Frankfurt-based airline plans to roll out Wi-Fi to its entire short- and medium-haul fleet by the middle of next year.

Passengers will be able to access the Wi-Fi through their mobile devices, and choose from three different packages: FlyNet Message, which will cost 3and allow passengers to use messaging services such as email, WhatsApp, or iMessage; FlyNet Surf, which, for 7 euros will allow users to surf the web; and FlyNet Stream, which will let passengers stream online content for 12 euros.

In addition, Eurowings, a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, will have 69 of its aircraft outfitted with Wi-Fi by the end of this summer.
