WiFi and entertainment on board

Time flies as you enjoy the films and other inflight entertainment available, or catch up on your latest e-mails and messages with WiFi on board.

WiFi on board

Stay connected to your friends and family, catch up on your latest e-mails or listen to your favourite playlists. On more and more of our aircraft, you can go online through WiFi on your own device. If you spot the WiFi logo on board, WiFi is available as soon as you're seated! 

Once you’re connected to the WiFi network, KLM’s onboard portal will automatically open. On this portal you can book activities for your destination, check your latest flight status, purchase an internet package, and more.

Enjoy free messaging (via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, and similar services) aboard all our aircraft equipped with internet. Next to that, we offer different kinds of internet packages, depending on the type of aircraft you’re flying with.


Use your own electronic devices

No need to put away your mobile phone or tablet on board anymore! You can use lots of types of portable electronic devices throughout any KLM flight. You just need to set your device to airplane mode or switch off the cellular service. Make sure to keep this in mind:

  • Electronic devices allowed include smartphones, tablets, e-readers, media players, radios, cameras, headphones, handheld games and pagers.
  • You will need to use headphones if your device produces sound.
  • You can always connect your own headset to the inflight entertainment system, and also connect your power supply in World Business Class. With the newest entertainment system now available on increasingly more of our aircraft, you can even connect your USB or power supply in both Economy and World Business Class.
  • Laptops and similar larger devices, and devices that weigh more than 1 kg (2.2 lbs), need to be stowed during taxi, take-off and landing.
  • Our crew will ask you to completely switch off and stow your devices in specific circumstances only.
Please note that the following devices are never allowed to be used on board: e-cigarettes, remote control toys, televisions, transmitters, VHF scanner/receivers and any device with cellular network service enabled. Read more about restricted and prohibited items.
