Trans-Pacific routes have been chosen by Qantas for in-flight connectivity trials offering passengers access to the internet and emails throughout the flight.
The assessment has commenced aboard six Qantas A380s, equipped with internet technology, for flights between Sydney and Los Angeles and Melbourne and Los Angeles and will last for eight weeks. Customers will be able to access the internet via their wi-fi enabled laptops and personal electronic devices, such as iPhones, iPads and BlackBerrys.
The connectivity service, provided by OnAir, uses Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband and global satellite based connections to transfer data between the passengers in the aircraft to the ground.
The trial will initially be available to customers travelling in the First and Business cabins and will form part of Qantas ongoing strategic evaluation of connectivity options, including the review of next generation technology platforms. www.qantas.com
