Philippine Airlines has become the first carrier
in Asia Pacific to provide its passengers with OnAir Play, OnAir’s
latest Wireless-IFE product.
OnAir Play combines multimedia inflight
entertainment with Internet OnAir. Passengers can stream or
download the on-demand content they choose to their own personal
electronic devices, like they do at home using TV channels’
And because the W-IFE will be fully integrated
with the plane’s connectivity, time-critical information, such as
live news and sports highlights, will be constantly updated
throughout the flight.
Philippine Airlines’ passengers will be able to
choose from a wide selection of movies catering to all type of
passengers. The magazines available on the e-reader feature of
OnAir Play include Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveller, Vanity Fair,
and National Geographic. The next stage is to include the digital
version of the duty free catalogue.
“We are expanding our long-haul network rapidly,
with plans to open routes to Australia, the US and beyond,” said
Ramon Ang, President of Philippine Airlines. “We are expanding our
fleet and we want to offer the latest cabin entertainment options
available. There is no doubt that merging entertainment with
connectivity provides a fun way of spending time during the
flight. Our passengers can now access the content they want, when
they want it, on the device of their choice.”
OnAir Play will be retro fitted to Philippine
Airlines’ A330s, which already have Mobile OnAir and Internet
OnAir, OnAir’s full GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity package.
