Power sockets for laptops and devices

Plug in, and keep your gadgets going throughout your flight.

This page tells you about the different plug socket options you can use to power your laptops and devices during our flights.

We offer inseat power in our Upper Class, Premium and some Economy cabins. You can use these options to power your devices, but not charge them - this is for safety reasons.

Depending on which aircraft you're flying on, there are three types of power options: USB, AC power and EmPower®, these are explained below.

If you know which aircraft you're flying on, you can use the table below to work out which power lead you'll need to bring with you. (If you're not sure which aircraft you're flying on, you can find out via My booking).

If you're planning to travel with medical equipment, check the restrictions here.
