Qantas to launch QStreaming across B767 fleet
Sydney, 19 July 2012
Qantas is set to launch QStreaming on its B767 fleet following the successful trial earlier this year.
Qantas Domestic CEO Lyell Strambi said customers travelling on Qantas’ B767 aircraft will now enjoy in-flight entertainment (IFE) streamed direct to iPads in every seat.
"Following the successful trial of our QStreaming service this year, we will partner with Panasonic and use their eXW solution to provide over 200 hours of on-demand IFE content via iPads to every passenger in Business and Economy travelling on our B767 fleet," said Mr Strambi.
"Our customers were the first in the world to experience the ground-breaking wi-fi entertainment technology and we received great feedback from our customers during the trial this year.
"QStreaming will be available free of charge to all our passengers across the B767 fleet.
"We’re now looking at ways to evolve this technology platform even further with our partner Panasonic to bring new standards of in-flight entertainment to our customers."
The first aircraft is set to roll out in the fourth quarter of this year and will predominantly operate east coast routes and also across to Perth.
The launch of QStreaming forms part of a wider strategic investment across the domestic customer experience including enhancements to ground operations and further domestic aircraft upgrades over the next few years.
