Jet2.com has announced the introduction of inflight entertainment onboard the low-fare airline’s flights of four hours or more using viliv devices.In a move that claims to be a first for the European low fares market, Jet2.com passengers can now enjoy current blockbuster movies, top TV shows, music tracks from chart topping albums and play popular games on high resolution seven inch touchscreen inflight entertainment units developed by viliv.“We’re proud to be able to offer such high quality inflight entertainment – this is a first for low fares flights customers in Europe,” said Paul Humphreys, retail director of Jet2.com. “The content is on demand so customers can watch what they want, when they want and have the freedom to pause, rewind or fast forward. Our customers will now enjoy their flight even more with their own personal multimedia device.”The personal inflight entertainment units can be attached to the seat in front or can stand on the seat back tray table. Jet2.com sells headphone splitters onboard the aircraft making it possible to share a device between two people and, with a good viewing angle, there is no loss of clarity on screen when sharing the unit.The units can be prebooked online or can be hired on board, subject to availability, for £10 per sector or as part of a family bundle of baggage and seat selection.
