Apple iPad tablet computer for in-flight entertainment (IFE) onboard commercial aircraft, business jets
Passengers on Jet Asia Airways' Bangkok-to-Tokyo route will be offered Apple's tablet free of charge in business class and for a fee in economy class as part of the airline’s new IFE service, Jet Asia Flight Xperience (JFx).
“The cutting-edge technology of Apple's best-selling tablet makes it ideal as a portable, in-flight entertainment system,” according to an IFE Services representative. “The iPad allows airline passengers to enjoy movies, TV shows, and music, read e-magazines and e-books, and play the latest generation games--all enhanced by a high-resolution screen, excellent sound system, and very long battery life.”
During their flight, passengers gain access to a selection of new and old Hollywood movies and a wide choice of music. The “rich choice of entertainment content” will be refreshed at regular intervals, says a spokesperson.
"The addition of JFx to the in-flight services currently being provided on Jet Asia is a step towards bridging the gap of services offered by charter operators and legacy carriers," says Jet Asia Airways' in-flight manager.
