Qantas to install iPads on B767s

Qantas customers will be able to access in-flight entertainment on iPads on B767 flights.

Qantas will partner with Panasonic to use its eXW solution for QStreaming, which will provide on-demand in-flight entertainment content in business class and economy.

The service will be free.

"Our customers were the first in the world to experience… Wi-Fi entertainment technology and we received great feedback from our customers during the trial this year,” Lyell Strambi, CEO of Qantas domestic, said in a statement.

"We’re now looking at ways to evolve [QStreaming] technology platform even further with our partner Panasonic to bring new standards of in-flight entertainment to our customers."

The first B767 aircraft will be fitted with the iPads in the fourth quarter of this year and will primarily operate on the east coast and Perth routes.
