Qantas Travellers To Score Foxtel, Netflix, Spotify Wi-Fi Freebies

Qantas Travellers To Score Foxtel, Netflix, Spotify Wi-Fi Freebies

Make sure to take your mobile the next time you fly domestically by Qantas. Passengers will be able to use their mobiles to access Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify services free of charge when the Flying Kangaroo switches on its in-flight Wi-Fi service later this month, the airline revealed yesterday. They will also be able to watch live sport, Qantas revealed.

Netflix will offer new customers a 30-day free trial; existing Netflix members only need to log in to watch at no extra charge.

Spotify will offer a 30-day free trial of its Premium music service, which has no ads, shuffle play and unlimited skips, while Foxtel will offer three days free access via its app every time a customer flies.

Only one aircraft, a Boeing 737, has so far been fitted to receive the Wi-Fi service, which connects to NBN Co’s Sky Muster satellite operation, but Qantas says the rest of the airline’s fleet of domestic Boeing 737 and Airbus A330 aircraft will follow from mid-2017.

Customers must log on to the inflight Wi-Fi via their own mobile devices, and will be greeted by a “landing page” with a range of options, including real-time flight data; and hotel, restaurant and transport options at the flight destination; as well as Internet access.

Qantas says it is now talking to suppliers about extending services to its international and regional (QantasLink) fleets, with a major challenge being to seek Wi-Fi options over large stretches of water.
