To keep your gadgets going throughout your flight, we offer inseat power in our Upper Class, Premium Economy and some Economy cabins.
Depending on which aircraft you're flying on, there are three types of power options: USB, AC power and EmPower®.
If you know which aircraft you're flying on, you can use our 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.
Please be aware that for safety reasons, you can use these options to power your devices, but not charge them.
If you’re in a seat equipped with AC Power, you'll just need the standard wall power supply that came with your laptop or other electrical device.
The power on the aircraft is typically 110V AC. It has a universal receptacle that accepts the following types of plugs:
EmPower® offers 15V DC power at up to 75 watts per seat, so you'll need an adapter that’s compatible.
The system has a limit on the power it can provide to a seat. There may be times when your device needs more than the system can provide, so it'll either work for a short period of time, or not at all.
For Apple laptop owners, the MagSafe Airline Adapter is compatible with EmPower® outlets.
If you don't have your own lead, our cabin crew has Kensington power leads you can borrow: just ask. The leads may need either a US or UK plug adaptor.
Our aircraft also feature USB sockets to power your devices.
