Qantas To Trial Inflight Internet
Qantas is expected to begin trialling in-flight Internet on domestic routes in 2016, according to Australian Business Traveller.
“We are continuing to explore options to introduce on board Wi-Fi,” Qantas head of customer experience Phil Capps told the aviation user Web site.
“We know many of our customers want to stay connected at all stages of their journey, but we want to do it right – so we are in talks with providers, as new satellite platforms could create some fantastic opportunities, particularly on domestic flights,” Capps said.
The Flying Kangaroo is also looking at the options on the fitout of eight new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, the first of which are due around the end of 2017. Each of the red-tailed 787s will be fitted with approximately 250 seats, split between business class, premium economy and economy.
