first_imgFoxtel, Netflix and Spotify will provide content on Qantas Wi-Fi enabled domestic flights in 2017, with video and audio streaming possible thanks to speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional inflight Wi-Fi.The service will be available on the first aircraft in late February this year, with the rest of the airline’s fleet of domestic Boeing 737 and Airbus A330 aircraft coming online from mid-2017 onwards.Qantas group executive of brand, marketing and corporate affairs Olivia Wirth said that fast, free internet will open up a huge range of options for customers inflight.“We know that email, online shopping and general web browsing will be popular uses when we switch on Wi-Fi, 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,” said Wirth.“Foxtel and Netflix both have huge catalogues that are expanding all the time, so there will be no shortage of entertainment on board.“The usage data from the collection of albums we already have on our aircraft shows that music is a great way for passengers to relax as they watch the world fly by. Spotify will open this up so you can listen to virtually any song you like,” she said.While Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify are all paid subscription services, they will offer free access to Qantas customers on and off the aircraft for between three days and one month after their Qantas flight.Customers will log on to the inflight Wi-Fi via their own devices, and as well as links to access Netflix, Spotify and Foxtel, the landing page will feature real-time flight data; hotel, restaurant and transport options at the destination; the latest weather; and personalised information linked to the passenger’s itinerary and Frequent Flyer account. Streaming of Sky News Australia will also be available. FoxtelNetflixqantasSpotifylast_img
