Virgin’s in-flight entertainment kicks off with Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

One week trial in process, with full implementation scheduled for June 2012

Virgin Australia has launched the first phase of its in-flight entertainment plans with the implementation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on select flights.

The tablet will be trialled in business class cabins of selected Boeing 737 and Embraer E190 aircraft for one week until April 30. Second instalment is scheduled for May, with full implementation planned for June 2012.

The device will be offered to Flexi Fare guests travelling on flights over three hours. Economy customers will be able to pay an additional fee on similar flights for access to the devices.

Virgin Australia product and guest services group executive, Martin Daley, said that the trial represents a step towards phase two, “which is the roll-out of the Wi-Fi system developed by Lufthansa Systems, scheduled to take place later this year.”

The Wi-Fi will be usable with the Galaxy Tab, as well as personal guest devices.
