Qantas to provide Netflix, Spotify on domestic flights

Published on : Friday, February 17, 2017

qantasIn an innovative sales pitch, which may appear to be a first-of-its kind offering, Australia airlines, Qantas, will reportedly be providing in-flight Netflix, Australian TV app Foxtel, and Spotify services to its passengers. This move has been made possible after the airline switched to NBN’s Sky Muster satellite service, which the airline says is ten times faster than conventional in-flight Wi-Fi.

 
The subscription-based Netflix and Spotify services will be offered by the airlines to the passengers for free via 30 day trials, as per the report, though customers will need to register for them. Passengers will reportedly be able to retain their membership for the aforementioned services for a brief time even after the flight lands.

 
While the new in-flight Wi-Fi service will be launched in some domestic routes later this month, the rest of the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737 and Airbus A330 aircraft will get the technology in summer, as per media reports. Qantas says that it is considering the implementation of the technology on its international flights as well.

 
“We know that email, online shopping and general web browsing will be popular uses when we switch on Wi-Fi,” Olivia Worth, Qantas’ group executive of marketing, was quoted as saying in the report. “But what a lot of people relish about flying is being able to catch up on their favourite TV shows or watch movies they didn’t get to see at the cinema,” she added.
