Sydney - In a world first, Qantas will next month trial the very latest technology in in-flight entertainment (IFE) on board a domestic aircraft.

Q Streaming will allow all customers travelling on a dedicated aircraft during the trial the ability to stream inflight entertainment content to individual tablets supplied by Qantas whilst inflight.

Customers travelling on the aircraft will also be able to watch Qantas's in-flight entertainment on their laptop computer, smartphone, tablet or other WIFI enabled device later on in the trial.

"We are very pleased to be the first airline in the world to trial this wireless streaming product." said Executive Manager Customer Experience Alison Webster.

The initial six week trial of the IFE product will be on board a B767-300 and will run from the end of October through to early December this year.

Following the trial, Qantas will assess opportunities for the application of Q Streaming across both the domestic and international fleet.

Q Streaming utilises cutting edge wireless technology that enables customers to connect to the Qantas on demand IFE system, with their WIFI devices, providing Qantas customers with a greater variety of choice from a wide range of content.
