Travel guru Peter Greenberg will use Lufthansa’s FlyNet™ Internet service to broadcast live from 35,000 feet above the North Atlantic.

Lufthansa and world-renown travel expert Peter Greenberg will make both radio and airline history tomorrow with a planned two-hour live broadcast of Mr. Greenberg’s weekly radio show while flying high over the North Atlantic ocean. Greenberg will take advantage of Lufthansa’s industry-leading, in-flight Internet service, FlyNet™, with satellite-based ISP Connexion By Boeing, to deliver his weekly radio program live from aboard Lufthansa’s Flight 406, from Frankfurt to New York’s JFK International Airport.

“Travel Today with Peter Greenberg” is carried on more than 100 weekly affiliate radio stations as well as via the talk radio podcast web portal iRadioNow.com. The show can be heard from 10 a.m. to Noon E.T., and listeners can find a local station or connect to the Podcast at http://www.traveltodayradio.com.

Lufthansa was the first airline in the world to premiere the in-flight broadband Internet service FlyNet™ in early 2003. Lufthansa engineers worked with Connexion By Boeing, who provides the satellite and ground-based portions of the service, to provide another pioneering product for its passengers.

“FlyNet™ is an example of how Lufthansa is constantly seeking to provide innovative new choices in premium service for all of its passengers,” said Thomas Winkelmann, Lufthansa Vice President, The Americas. “We’re pleased Peter Greenberg chose Lufthansa in recognition of our leading in-flight broadband service to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of FlyNet™ and the ever-increasing reach of his well-known “Travel Today” radio program,” Winkelmann added.

Lufthansa Ranks among the top ten airlines in the world in terms of size and is the second-largest European airline, serving 411 destinations in more than 96 countries around the world, including 19 North American gateways. In 2005, Lufthansa flew a record 51 million passengers. Lufthansa’s industry-changing innovations include FlyNet™ (the first in-flight broadband internet service); BusinessJet (the industry’s trend-setting, business-class-only flights); PrivateJet (seamless premium private jet connections from transatlantic flights to Europe), and dedicated First Class Terminals and lounges that are setting new standards in luxury travel.
