easyJet to trial in-flight entertainment
easyJet has announced that they have partnered with Rakuten to provide free in-flight entertainment onboard. There will be a full range of entertainment available including TV box sets, film, audio books, games, flight information and destination guides.
‘Air Time’ will enable easyJet passengers to use the inflight entertainment via wi-fi to their own device. The content will also cover multiple languages including English, German, French, Spanish and Italian and feature services such as onboard language tutorials
‘Air Time’ will be initially available on five easyJet aircraft from this autumn, with plans to roll the service out to the entire fleet.
Interestingly British Airways have been hinting that they are working on something radical for their entertainment. I would put money on it being a very similar concept since BA are rolling out high-speed Wi-Fi on their aircraft currently.
