Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa are testing a new in-flight shopping service for passengers.
Guests have free access to the SKYdeals trading platform on flights within Europe via FlyNet on board Austrian Airlines Airbus. With a single click on a personal mobile device, the customer's destination and flight itinerary information is transferred to SKYdeals, and an exciting shopping process can be started.
Passengers will find products that are branded for their destination or route. They are presented in two categories. The first, called Fly Over, offers exclusive discounts on products typical of the country over which the flight is taking place - Swiss chocolate, for example. The second category, Quick Sales / Private Sales, gives passengers access to beauty, fashion and accessories items.
“Ordering and payment is carried out contactlessly, directly through the SKYdeals platform,” informed the representatives of the air carriers. "Then the purchase is delivered by mail to the address indicated by the buyer."
