The Challenge
Telekom Fashion Fusion & Lufthansa FlyingLab

The LUFTHANSA FlyingLab Challenge aims to make flying more comfortable than ever. How? Through tech innovation. We invite young fashion talent to submit their ideas to enhance the long distance flight experience by the use of fashion and technology.

We want you to not only tackle the issues that concern passengers, but also the cabin crew by equipping them with wearables and smart uniforms that take us into the future of flying.
