Jetstar to Offer iPads Rentals for $10 per Flight

Jetstar will offer passengers the option to rent an iPad for $10 per flight from early April, pending a licensing agreement with Apple, according to the Australian Business Traveller.

The touchscreen tablet will become a 'personal in-flight entertainment system' preloaded with movies, music, magazines, books and games.

As reported last year by Australian Business Traveller, the low-cost airline originally intended to launch its in-flight iPad program before last Christmas following a mid-2010 trial.

"The trial went very well, very well" Jetstar corporate relations chief Simon Westaway told Australian Business Traveller in November last year, "but we're still in the contract negotiation stage and we won't see (the iPads) until after Christmas, until early 2011".

"Based on demand for the iPads as part of the trial, we'll be looking to roll out the devices across our entire domestic and international network", said Jetstar CEO Bruce Buchanan.
