The FlyingLab is Lufthansa’s open innovation platform. Together with experts and partners, the airline is making the impact of digitalisation on all walks of life both visible and tangible. The topics come from the Technology, Well-Being, Zeitgeist and Sustainability sectors. FlyingLabs take place in airport lounges, at conventions and trade fairs, as well as on board scheduled flights.
Our FlyingLabs on board aircraft are composed of two parts: the conference itself and product testing. You can connect to the expert presentations on board with any WLAN-enabled device, irrespective of your booking class. The speakers and their presentation slides can be seen on live video streaming. Members of the audience can ask questions in writing about the presentation to engage in a dialogue. FlyingLabs are thematically matched to the flight destination or an event at the destination. People with the same destination often share the same interests. So by participating, you can expand your network during the flight.
Experience the future of flying
Your flight will become an unforgettable experience: In the Lufthansa FlyingLab, you can experience and test innovative products and services on board yourself.
Our first Lufthansa FlyingLab took place on 1 July 2016 on the flight from Frankfurt to San José, California, on the subject of Virtual Reality. During the course of the flight, passengers had the chance to get to know various state-of-the-art devices.
As well as this, you had the possibility of enjoying exclusive live presentations on exciting subjects at an altitude of 10,000 metres.
