Qantas is to progressively introduce new entertainment partner offers from June 2018, including in-flight meditation.
The airline’s first meditation video series has been specially designed to bring a sense of calm and help customers unwind in the air. The 10-minute guided meditation is set to aerial footage of some of the most beautiful landscapes around Australia. Customers can choose from five different scenes including Australian deserts, bushlands, coasts, forests and locations at twilight as they listen to the meditation.
The meditation video series is available now to view on YouTube and an immersive virtual reality (VR) version can be downloaded before travelling via the Qantas VR App .
Qantas has also signed up with Apple Music and Audible, and extended its existing partner content with Stan to give customers free access to more TV programs, movies, songs and digital audiobooks both inflight and on the ground.
According to Qantas chief customer officer Vanessa Hudson the expanded in-flight entertainment offering opened up more opportunities for customers to enjoy some “me time” during their flight.
“Customers tell us they value being able to take time for themselves in-flight and watch a movie or read a book, and now we can help them find a little extra relaxation with guided meditation,” said Hudson.
While Apple Music, Audible and Stan are all paid subscription services, they will offer free access to Qantas customers on and off the aircraft.
The offers include up to four months free subscription to Apple Music, one free audiobook per month for the first three months from the full Audible.com.au library of downloadable audiobooks for new Audible customers, while Stan, which is currently available on Qantas Wi-Fi enabled aircraft, will now offer three months of unlimited access to TV shows and movies to new Stan customers on all Qantas flights.
