Air Baltic claims it will be the world’s first airline to sell TV sets on flights, at “aggresively discounted prices”. The airline also plans to introduce iPad in-flight entertainment
The Latvian carrier says the sale of TVs, which starts this weekend, is “yet another step towards Air Baltic becoming a megastore for passengers who are looking for good deals – from flights, hotels to sunglasses, electronics, and even flowers for someone special”.
Neither the make nor size of the flatscreen TVs in question is given, but Air Baltic says it will offer savings of €240, the equivalent of “a family holiday in selected Air Baltic destinations”.
The TV sets will be available on international flights to 80 destinations in Europe, the Middle East and CIS, and will be shipped for free to EU member states.
Air Baltic also recently announced plans to be "the first airline in Europe" to introduce iPads for in-flight entertainment “in the coming season”, although there are no details on pricing or routes as yet.
