Qantas Airways has announced plans to offer Apple iPads to passengers on its Jetstar flights, MarketWatch reports. “We’re in the final stages of putting in place what would be a broader roll out across the network,” a Jetstar spokesman said in an interview Monday. “We’re in ongoing discussion with the manufacturer around a more integrated network proposition.” According to the spokesman, the iPad will be made available to passengers on domestic and long-haul Jetstar flights after a successful trial of the service. No information on what apps or other entertainment options might be pre-loaded on the devices was given. [via MDN]
