Qantas Launches Inflight Entertainment on Every QantasLink Jet

QantasLink jets will be progressively upgraded with inflight entertainment that can be streamed to personal devices from late September. Customers traveling on over 50 Boeing 717s, Fokker 100s, and Airbus A320s will enjoy over 2,500 hours of premium content.

Today (September 2, 2021), Qanats announced that starting at the end of September, the entire QantasLink fleet will be progressively upgraded with inflight entertainment that guests can stream on their personal electronic devices. Customers traveling on over 50 Boeing 717s, Fokker 100s, Airbus A320s and Alliance Airline’s Embraer E190s will soon have access to over 2,500 hours of premiere movies and binge-worth TV series. Guests will also have access to additional programing through streaming partner Stan, including exclusive TV shows and original films. The entertainment upgrade process will start this week on one of QantasLink’s Airbus A320s and is expected to be rolled out fleetwide by the second half of 2022. Once completed, inflight entertainment will be available on up to 180 Qantas and QantasLink aircraft.


In Thursday’s announcement, Qantas Group’s Chief Customer Officer, Stephanie Tully, said,


“Customers tell us they value being able to take time for themselves inflight to catch up on their favourite TV shows or watch movies they didn’t get to see at the cinema. This investment means more of our customers will have access to inflight entertainment, particularly when travelling to smaller capital cities and regional centres. In a normal year, our customers watch more than 20 million hours of movies and TV shows while flying with us, so we know our streaming service is incredibly popular, especially on longer domestic routes. With Australia’s vaccination rollout gaining momentum we expect the demand for travel will quickly return as restrictions ease. Improvements like this will make it even better when it does.”


Currently, inflight entertainment is available via the Qantas Entertainment App and is offered on QantasLink’s two-class Boeing 717-200s, as well as the Qantas 737 and A330 fleets which fly domestically. The 737s and A330s also feature free high-speed Wi-Fi. In addition to inflight entertainment, Qantas customers and Frequent Flyers also enjoy premium service such as complimentary food and drinks, baggage, fast and free Wi-Fi and access to a network of 35 lounges in Australia.
