Jetstar flights will never be the same again.

Low fares carrier Jetstar announced the first ever rollout of iPads on board today, the first airline in the world to offer “tailored technology” run on WiFi, all pre-programmed.

iPad will let high fliers watch latest release movies, TV classics like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Man vs. Wild, Big Bang Theory and music as well as games like Real Football, Asphalt 5, e-magazines (Australian Women’s Weekly and Rolling Stone) and e-books on “selected” flights from today.

The airline has signed deals with Hollywood movie houses like Disney and Sony and offering stong movies menu on-board including the likes of Beginners, Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows Part 1, Horrible Bosses and Friends with Benefits.

Customers have choice between iPad or iPad 2 for $10-$15 but are only available for passengers on flights longer than two hours.

And will land to Australian domestic, trans Tasman and short haul international services from Australia and New Zealand, in the coming weeks and plans to hit Jetstar’s Asia network also, a total haul of 3000 tablets. 

The cult tab cannot be pre-booked and are available onboard only for shorthaul flights like Sydney to Perth, however, iPad’s  on long haul flights, available from December, can be pre-booked.

“Jetstar is proud to be the world’s first airline to entertain its customers with cutting-edge iPad technology,” Jetstar Group CEO, Bruce Buchanan, said.

“Doing things first and doing them differently are key to Jetstar’s success. We’ve listened to our customers and know in-flight entertainment is an important part of their overall travel experience, so we’ve made sure the new iPads offer the very best viewing experience.

 

“We’ve worked with major motion picture houses to ensure that our customers have access to the latest release movies, a first for the industry.

“We’ve also collaborated with the industry to and will also offer next-generation games for customers using the iPad in-flight,” he added.

The entertainment content will be updated once a week.
