Iceland Express is to become the first European airline to offer the Apple iPad on all transatlantic flights. The aircraft will have up to 25 devices onboard.
The Reykjavik-based budget carrier currently flies twice weekly from Gatwick to New York Newark via Iceland. Passengers will be able to watch films and TV shows, listen to music, read magazines/books and play games. The iPad has a 10 hour duration and the onboard rental price for the gadget is £9. Iceland Express plans to introduce wi-fi at a later date.
The low fare airline plans to roll out the service to the rest of the fleet early next year. Flights to Chicago and Boston will be introduced next June, as well as departures from Edinburgh, Dublin and Belfast. Starting in May 2011 the schedule frequency will increase, with daily flights between London and New York. www.icelandexpress.com
