Jetstar delays iPad roll out

18 Nov 2010

Jetstar, the low-cost subsidiary of Qantas Airlines, has delayed rolling out iPads across its network until next year. Initially, the iPads were to be rolled out by year-end.

The airline plans to rent out the gadget for US$9.70, which passengers can use to watch movies, read newspapers and magazines or play games.

The delay, says chief of Jetstar corporate relations, Simon Westaway, is due to contract negotiations with Apple and media outlets.

The scheme was first introduced in June on a trial basis on domestic routes, which proved to be successful.
