Australia's low cost airline Jetstar, is to trial the newest Apple gadget, the iPad, for its onboard entertainment.

Jetstar will be one of the first airlines in the world to trial iPads, beginning later this month on selected domestic routes across Australia.

The iPads will provide inflight entertainment with movies, TV programs, eBooks, music videos, games and CDs. Jetstar passengers will have to pay A$10 to rent the iPad on board.

 "We are really excited to commence the trial of the iPads, as we're always looking for ways to enhance our customer's Jetstar experience," said Jetstar Chief Executive Officer, Bruce Buchanan. "Given the demand for the iPad so far, I anticipate it will have strong appeal amongst our passengers."

Based on the demand for iPads during the trial, the airline will consider rolling out the devices across its entire domestic and international network later in the year.

Jetstar is working with in-flight entertainment specialist Bluebox Avionics and Stellar Inflight to implement the trial.
