Failed abroad!

Hi, my son went to Majorca by plane. His Kindle Fire HD8 stopped working in the sky, it was in aeroplane mode, and it wouldn't work in Majorca either. Once we returned to the UK it worked again! I am going to Montenegro, will the same thing happen again? Is there something we should do to it to make it work abroad? Thanks

RE: Failed abroad!

You should be able to connect it to the nearest wifi wherever you are, if there is a public one around. There may not always be free wifi, depending on the local circumstances. Even if you aren't online you should be able to access your books and other downloaded stuff.
I have used my Kindle fire in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Finland etc and on trains and boats in between, without any special settings or anything.. If it works all right in the UK then it sounds as if the problem isn't with the Kindle itself.
