From October, transatlantic airline, OpenSkies, is introducing iPads for passengers as part of the carrier’s inflight entertainment (IFE) offering.
Claiming to be the first French flag carrier to offer the iPad as IFE, the new devices will be introduced on the OpenSkies Newark to Paris-Orly route in an effort to enhance the passengers’ onboard experience.
“As an airline, OpenSkies is known for its innovation and will continue to invest in new technology and products which give our customers a best-of-class experience in the sky,” commented OpenSkies Product Manager, Karin Drylie. “The introduction of the iPad to our inflight entertainment marks a significant improvement in the experience for customers, using the very latest technology to offer better image quality on a far bigger screen.”
Passengers will be provided an iPad pre-loaded with 64GB of the latest films, TV and games to use for the duration of the flight. In addition, a new customer guide provides a quick and easy introduction to the specially programmed iPad, as well as a list of entertainment choices.
