The corona pandemic helped online retailers such as Amazon, but also many smaller mail-order companies, to achieve a real boom. No wonder, as most of the shops were closed. Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines are now launching their own store in their on-board WiFi.

The sale of duty-free articles above the clouds, in a very classic way by cabin crew, is currently restricted at many airlines or is no longer available at all. This is expressly not the case for Ryanair, as sales continue there. Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines now want to modernize the topic of in-flight sales and offer a platform within the Flynet. This can be accessed, for example, via a smartphone or laptop.

Products are offered that are related to the respective destination. This is called "Fly Over". According to the group, chocolate from the Confederation, for example, will be offered when flying over Switzerland. The “Quick Sales / Private Sales” category includes offers on the subjects of fashion, beauty and accessories.

The goods are paid for online via the Skydeals platform. The purchase is then sent to the desired delivery address by a parcel service.
