Philippine Airlines has become the first carrier in Asia Pacific to provide its passengers with OnAir Play, OnAirs 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 on-demand apps.

And because the W-IFE will be fully integrated with the planes 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 Apptit, Cond 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, OnAirs full GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity package.
