Jetstar will be one of the first airlines in the world to trial iPads on their flights.

Due to be available on selected domestic flights in June, iPads will be offered for hire at $10, providing passengers with in-flight entertainment such as movies, television programmes, eBooks, music videos, games and CDs.

“We are really excited to commence the trial of the iPads, as were always looking for ways to enhance our customers Jetstar experience. Given the demand for the iPad so far, I anticipate it will have strong appeal amongst our passengers, said Jetstar CEO, Bruce Buchanan.

If the demand on flights is high enough, Buchanan mentioned that Jetstar would be looking to include the devices across their entire domestic and international network later in the year.

Jetstar is working with in-flight entertainment specialist Bluebox Avionics and Stellar Inflight to implement the trial.
