Here is how to download Spotify music before entering a flighting mode.

Step 1Launch Spotify app on your mobile phone or tablet.

Step 2Hit on "Library" >  "Setting" menu --> tap on "Playback" --> switch on "Offline".

Method 2: Play Spotify Music on Airplane Mode without Premium

With Spotify Free, you can get access to Spotify's catalog of over 100 million tracks on your computer or tablet at no cost. And you are allowed to play any song or playlist with ads, but only when the internet is connected.
