TUIfly is the first European Airline testing the possibilities of Tablet use in airplanes. Passengers on medium-haul flights can rent an iPad for €9 during the evaluation phase running until the end of October this year. Users of the service will have the chance to compile their own in-flight entertainment channel and to choose between a range of current movies, kid programmes, travel magazines and radio stations. Thus, passengers can choose whatever they like on a finger tip.
TUIfly says if passengers accept the new entertainment service, TUIfly plans to provide Tablets on all flights beginning in summer 2012.
